MENTORSHIP MISSION

The mission of the MOLA Mentorship Program is to provide sustained, professionally-supported relationships to underrepresented Latino/a students pursuing careers in health care.
The MOLA Mentorship Program aims to build a pipeline to health care careers for motivated high school and undergraduate students.  Mentorship is provided in a team-based structure across all levels: Health Care Leaders, Physicians, Resident Physicians, Medical Students, Undergraduates, and High School Students.

Being a mentor is an amazing and rewarding way to give back to the community and make a difference in the life of a young aspiring physician.
