What We DoIncreasing Minority Students in Medical School


Colors of Medicine is an organization started up at the University of Texas Medical Branch with the support of a Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board grant. The Colors of Medicine mission is to increase the number of underrepresented minority students matriculating into medical school. Studies have shown that physicians of color are better equipped to treat patients of color. We hope that by supporting underrepresented minority students in their medical school endeavers we can increase the amount of minority doctors in the workforce and improve health care for all patients.
