Pathway Programs Overview

The Pathway Programs at Tufts University School of Medicine and the Tufts Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences serve 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 Pathway Programs have successfully been assisting in minority education at Tufts School of Medicine and the Tufts Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences for over twenty years.

The Teachers and High School Students Program (TAHSS) program of over 30 + years and its new collaboration with the CSE, has now entitled the new program,  STEM+M CONNECT. It “offers high school students a unique one month paid summer experience that combines a residential experience of Tufts Mini Med School with a multi-tiered mentoring program.” This summer program’s mission is very similar to that of TAHSS although the new program components are somewhat different and enhanced.
