School of Medicine Today
“. . . join us as we carry that mission to a new day, guided by our past.”
Today, nearly 5,000 students apply for the 105 slots available for first-year medical students. While Meharry’s clinics provide $35 million in uncompensated care to patients each year, our faculty and students also actively serve the community through many programs involving mentoring, counseling, and volunteer work.
Although a historically Black medical college, Meharry Medical College reflects the diversity of our nation with student-body representation from the Caucasian, Hispanic, Asian, and Native-American communities. The School of Medicine is proud to support the College’s mission statement by training new generations of health care professionals and serving as a national leader in community-based health care that focuses on patient care, AIDS research, public health, and medical education. We must persist in closing the gap in health disparities.
The Meharry community is rich in heritage, honorable in service, and innovative in cutting-edge research. Are you ready to be part of the next generation?
