Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education

Biomedical Science Program Description

There is a continuing shortage of primary care physicians in our nation, creating an urgent need for more family practitioners, general internists, pediatricians, and obstetrician/gynecologists in many communities. The shortage of African-American and Hispanic primary care physicians and of primary care physicians in inner city areas is particularly acute.

The Biomedical Science Program of the Sophie Davis School of Biomedical Education, is committed to:

  1. Produce broadly educated, highly skilled physicians who are prepared to undertake postgraduate training.
  2. Increase the number of physicians of African-American, Hispanic and other ethnic backgrounds who have been historically under-represented in the medical profession and whose communities have been historically underserved by primary care practitioners.
  3. Encourage students to become primary care physicians who will:
    • provide superior preventive and therapeutic medical care to underserved urban communities.
    • plan for effective, comprehensive health care services in cooperation with community leaders, residents, and providers of health-related services.
    • serve as health care advocates for individuals and families living in the communities in which they practice.
