MPP Academy Board of Councilors

Committed to Building a Diverse Pipeline of Future Medical Students, as Early as 4th Grade, to the Physician Workforce.

The MPP Academy Board of Councilors is composed of a diverse group of individuals committed to achieving the MPP Academy’s Goal 2035, which is to increase the percentage of U.S. doctors who are underrepresented in the physician workforce from the current rate of 11 percent to 25 percent by the year 2035.

Members of the Board provide strategic advice, support and assistance to the senior leadership team at the MPP Academy. Members advocate for the MPP Academy’s mission to increase the number of high achieving students who are academically and mentally prepared with the social-emotional skills to: 1) complete medical school and 2) become licensed to practice medicine in a medical specialty that provides a sense of purpose and meaning to their lives.

As a board member, you will oversee and approve our pre-med curriculum, clinical diagnostic simulations, medical site visits, and hands-on workshops provided to future medical students to help them explore a variety of careers in medicine and medical physician specialties.

Board Members will participate in two virtual “Think-Tank” innovation sessions (fall and spring) per year. During these “Think Tank” sessions, members will problem-solve, strategize, and develop action plans to strengthen MPP Academy programs and focus on sustainable impact. 

Members will collaborate with medical school student leaders, professionals in the medical community, and other stakeholders, who share a similar mission to increase the diversity of the physician workforce, to help shape the academic and career preparation experiences, activities, curriculum, and culture of the MPP Academy.
