The University of Miami’s Health Professions Mentoring (HPM) Program is designed to prepare and strongly position students for admission to medical school through an enriched curriculum and academic and professional mentoring throughout their four years of college.

The HPM Program will prepare students to be competitive applicants to any medical school of their choice upon completion of their bachelor’s degree. The program provides an enriching curriculum, where students participate in exclusive, hands-on and engaging courses. 

  • Multigenerational mentoring by faculty, medical school students, and advanced undergraduates
  • Professional development activities
  • Monthly meetings with special guest speakers in the medical profession
  • Enriched academic curriculum:
    • HHMI Integrative Biology/Chemistry Research Lab course: HPM Program students in their first year are enrolled in these labs and will do authentic research
    • Clinical Medicine course, taught by medical school faculty: HPM Program students are introduced to the art of diagnosis, appropriate treatment, and understanding of disease etiology via shadowing physicians in various departments, through case studies, and in simulation labs
    • MCAT course at no additional cost: this course will be part of the curriculum
