Medical Physician Preparation (MPP) Academy

A Division of the NAPCA Foundation

We are committed to building a diverse pipeline of future medical doctors and scientists for the physician and healthcare workforce, as early as 4th grade, that is more representative of the U.S. population.

Student Safety & Supervision

Student safety and supervision are our first priority at NAPCA. All NAPCA programs are held at safe campus locations and have campus security. Campus security officers frequently patrol all campus facilities used by our programs.

Students are supervised by a NAPCA staff member throughout their entire day as they move from activity to activity in our small group format. Our student-to-staff ratio of 10:1 will ensure that your student is supervised and cared for during their entire stay with us.

Comprehensive communication plans are put in place prior to the start of programs. Staff members remain in constant contact with each other and with the on-site office. Emergency communication plans are also in place, allowing us to communicate directly with parents in the event of an emergency. An emergency response network is in place to provide assistance during regular program hours, after hours, and on weekends.

Student Safety & Supervision for Residential Students

For those students that live on campus, nightly room checks are conducted to ensure all students are safe and secure, and designated staff perform scheduled walkthroughs of the residence halls while students are resting in their dorm rooms from 11:00pm to 7:00am. During site visits, all students must stay with their assigned group and staff member as well as cooperate with site-specific security measures. Our staff of highly experienced educators are trained in safety and emergency procedures. Staff members are carefully screened and undergo background checks.
