Are you interested in a health career? Are you an Arizona high school student in your junior year? If you answered yes, we invite you to apply for Med-Start: 5-week program, 2 locations, explore health careers, experience college life, earn college credit, hands-on participation
Med-Start is a summer academic enrichment program for any Arizona high school student interested in a health career. Two sites are available, Med-Start Tucson and Med-Start Phoenix. Students participate in the program during the summer between their junior and senior years.
Med-Start was created in 1969 to help improve healthcare in rural, reservation, and economically disadvantaged areas through the recruitment and training of students from these regions. Med-Start helps young people prepare for their future in the health professions by exploring career opportunities and providing college level coursework in English and science. Due to a demanding schedule, we require that students not hold summer jobs or participate in other programs during Med-Start.
Do I qualify to attend Med-Start? Med-Start welcomes applications from all high school juniors who have a strong interest in a health care profession and are considering college in their future. Because they are underrepresented in the health care professions, students who are of Hispanic, American Indian, or African American backgrounds, who live in rural or reservation areas, are first-generation college, and/or economically or educationally disadvantaged are especially encouraged to apply.
