Med-Start Eligibility

  • High school students who have completed their junior year and have a strong interest in a healthcare profession.
  • All students must be US citizens or permanent residents, and one-year Arizona residents
  • Must have GPA of 3.0 or higher and complete the interview process.
  • Med-Start welcomes applications from all students. Because they are underrepresented in the healthcare professions, students who are of ethnic minority backgrounds (Hispanic, Native American, African American), are first-generation college, and/or are economically disadvantaged, are especially encouraged to apply. 

The Med-Start Tucson program is a residential program.  All participants are required to reside in a University of Arizona residence hall through the duration of the entire program under the supervision of Counselors and Staff. Participants must PARTICIPATE at ALL presentations, tours and required classes.
