Our Mission

Our Mission: Inspiring, guiding, and empowering Latinas who choose careers in medicine.

Our Vision: Increasing the number of Latina women in the medical fields by inspiring and nurturing elementary, high school, and and college-aged Latinas through mentorship, academic support, and career and leadership development.

Latinas In Medicine, Inc. is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization established in August of 2016 for the specific purpose of promoting and contributing to the advancement of Latina women in medicine.

Latinas in Medicine will be selecting a cohort of 15 young women for its inaugural class of 2018. The cohort will be made of 5 high school, 5 Community College and 5 undergraduate Latina students. This cohort of 15 will begin their Latinas in Medicine experience at our LIM summer residential retreat.

Our plan is to begin recruitment in early 2018, selection in spring 2018 and welcome our first cohort for summer 2018.
