Program to Advance Training in Health and Science (PATHS), a 10-month virtual initiative that provides undergraduate students or recent graduates with a transformative learning experience to support their goal of applying for and earning an MD, MD/Ph.D., or Ph.D. in biomedical sciences. This is a great opportunity for students from underrepresented groups who are:
