Making the Connection

advisory-hendrix.jpgThe USA ODI’s vision is to "become more culturally competent through a rich tapestry of diversity and multiculturalism which leads to the development of a diverse practicing workforce, a reduction in health disparities, and an increase in healthcare access and quality." The University of South Alabama College of Medicine is committed to creating a more inclusive environment through enhanced recruitment and retention of high achieving underrepresented groups that are in medicine. The College of Medicine promotes diversity and believes it lends to healthier classroom learning, teaching and research experiences. In order to fulfill the mission of the College of Medicine (COM), one of my primary focuses is to collaborate with the COM’s Office of Admissions and the Office of Student Affairs and Medical Education. In addition, partnerships and collaboration have been established with the University’s College of Allied Health Professions and the College of Nursing, local and private high schools, and select colleges, universities and civic organizations as we build a more diverse and inclusive healthcare community.

The University of South Alabama College of Medicine, ODI wants to make the connection with you as we work to develop a more diverse healthcare community. Whether you are a prospective student, alumnus, educator, civic or religious leader, there is a connection in the USA College of Medicine that awaits you! Contact me to arrange a personal meeting with our office to learn more about charting a successful pathway to medical school. We are readily available to conduct one-on-one undergraduate and or pre-professional school advising, mock interviews, and help you arrange your personal campus tour through our SouthMed Prep Visit Program. We look forward to helping you navigate a path to making your dreams come true. Take advantage of your USA experience today! Go Jags!
