The Hispanic Center of Excellence at the University of Illinois at Chicago offers a free academic enrichment program in the College of Medicine, the Medicina Academy Apprentice Program (MAAP).
MAAP is a pre-medical program aimed to initiate an educational pathway into medical school by investing in the preparation of high school students aspiring to become physicians. Apprentices take part in medical courses & lab sessions; higher education courses; inter/intrapersonal activities; and career development sessions twice a month on Saturdays at UIC from September to May.
MAAP is accepting applications from current 9th, 10th, and 11th graders to begin the program in the Fall. Interested students are encouraged to apply early. Applications will be accepted until slots are filled or no later than April 26, 2019. If you have any questions about the program, please call 312-355-2529.
