HSC Assists Native American Student Workshop

An Association of American Indian Physicians (AAIP), Four Corners Alliance Pre-Admissions Workshop (PAW) for Native American pre-health students will occur at The Hilton Albuquerque on April 28, at the UNM HSC Campus on April 29, and the Hotel Santa Fe on April 30.

Beginning in December 2010, the Four Corners Alliance was established to open dialogue with Native communities across the four corner states between the Schools of Medicine of University of Arizona, University of Colorado, University of Utah, and University of New Mexico. Collaboration between the Higher institutions resulted in the Pre-Admissions Workshop, which aims to better serve and prepare Native American students to be competitive in their pursuit to get accepted into Medical School.

As a part of the Indians in Medicine grant, the Center for Native American Health, the HSC Office of Diversity, the HSC School of Medicine Admissions, and the Four Corners Alliance in collaboration with Association of American Indian Physicians, will be hosting PAW this week. Native American pre-health students will travel into Albuquerque from distinct Native American reservations from across the United States. Please welcome the PAW students and the Four Corners Alliance partners to UNM HSC.
