Abstract (type = abstract)
There is a long history of efforts to improve the number of underrepresented students in higher education, including those in the various health profession fields. In particular, given the changing demographics in the United States, there has been an increase in the number of initiatives to provide access, scholarships, and funding to underrepresented students in high school and college pipeline programs leading to health care careers. This qualitative study focuses on the Biomedical Careers Program (BCP), an intervention created to help increase access of minority student populations into the health professions at the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (RWJMS). It examines student perspectives in the form of interview data, to determine how BCP effects the preparation of underrepresented students for medical school. The purpose of this study is to provide participants of BCP with a voice and utilize those real stories to inform existing and future programs with similar goals. Evidence demonstrated four main findings on how BCP prepares underrepresented students for medical professions via the transmission of cultural and social capital: 1) informal mentorship and guidance, 2) social learning through clinical exposure, 3) academic study, and 4) social interaction. This study also reveals implications for practice, not only for other institutions and professionals who work with pipeline programs, but also recommendations for improvement within BCP.
