About the Medical Scholars Program
The Medical Scholars Program at the University of California Riverside started with 15 students in 2004 and has grown to serve over 800 undergraduates.
Students are offered a variety of opportunities for academic and personal growth. MSP is a community of highly motivated and talented students interested in careers in the health sciences who support each other’s goals. The program provides peer-based academic and social support through mentoring, academic coaching, community service and team building activities.
The mission of the Medical Scholars Program is to increase the diversity of UC Riverside Students who succeed in their B.S. or B.A. training and achieve their goal of entering medical school or post graduate programs and research.
