The Office of Student Diversity and Inclusion offers several programs throughout the year that seek to enhance a student’s knowledge of health professions as well as medical school. These programs allow the students to interact with UT Southwestern Medical Center's diverse medical students, health care professionals, and faculty. 

The purpose of these programs is to recruit minority students into health care fields and offer mentoring opportunities to high school students, college students and medical students.
