Pipeline Programs

The Pipeline Programs at Tufts University School of Medicine and the Sackler School of Graduate Biomedical Sciences serve minority students interested in the fields of medicine and biomedical sciences.

Our programs begin with youth in middle school and high school by providing interesting and informative courses for those who take an early interest in medicine or biomedical sciences. If students choose to pursue these fields, support and services continue through college and post undergraduate studies.

Many students then choose to give back by mentoring or teaching pipeline courses of their own to the next generation of pipeline students.

The Pipeline Programs have successfully been assisting in minority education at TUSM and the Sackler School for over a decade.
