The Ohiyesa Premedical Program is a year-long educational program designed to engage and support Native American tribal and/or community college students interested in pursuing a healthcare career, with a program focus on the physician pathway. The program includes quarterly virtual group meetings, individual meetings with faculty sponsors and mentors, and a 3 week on-site summer program in Boston at the Brigham and Women's Hospital.

The on-site portion of the program culminates in a presentation to Harvard Medical School students, staff, and faculty, while the off-site portion culminates with an end of year final reflection paper. On successful completion of the program, participants will receive a certificate and a letter of support from a program lead who is a Harvard Medical School faculty member.


Eligible applicants include Native American youth entering either the first or second year at a Native American or Alaska Native tribal college or community college.
