OhioHealth Physician Diversity Scholars Program Support Fund

Your gift provides support for the Physician Diversity Scholars Program. These funds may be used for student scholarships, faculty and staff support, travel, research, and other programmatic support. 

The Physician Diversity Scholars Program takes a proactive approach to building diversity by giving first-year underrepresented minority medical students a unique opportunity for growth and engagement. The program seeks to help these students become well-rounded, accomplished scholars with the ability to make a positive impact on the diversity of Southeast and central Ohio’s healthcare.  

From mentor experiences to community service to professional enrichment, the program ensures that participants will gain knowledge based on experiential learning. 
 
Scholars selected for the four-year program are matched with a physician with whom they will have an opportunity to develop a mentor/scholar relationship. The program complements curriculum at Heritage College while offering the scholar meaningful interaction with underrepresented minority community populations in a healthcare context.
