The mission of the MOLA Mentorship Program is to provide sustained, professionally-supported relationships to underrepresented Latino/a students pursuing careers in health care.
Through a combination of one-on-one and trio mentorship structures that focus on bilingual health lectures, clinical experience, and career networking, the MOLA Mentorship Program aims to develop a pipeline to careers in medicine.
