The Made for Medicine Program

Made for Medicine is our program designed to support and increase the number of African American or Black students with an interest in the field of medicine. The program is divided into 3 phases—Intro. to Medicine (Grades 6-7), Deeper Dive (Grades 8-9), and Commitment to Medicine (Grades 10-12)—all of which provide students with critical foundational knowledge, hands-on learning, job shadowing, internships, and much more. The goal of Made for Medicine is for participants to leave the program with solid preparation and commitment to pursuing a future career in medicine.  Made for Medicine programming is made possible by the Columbus Medical Association Foundation and is free to any student who is offered enrollment.
