Program Goal 2.   Recruit, mentor, and support a diverse student body

To help achieve health equity in healthcare, the Emory PA Program has taken an active role in recruiting minority students from Historically Black Colleges and Universities located in Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, Louisiana and Tennessee and by attending recruitment fairs that target underrepresented minority students.

The Emory PA Program has developed a mentoring program for accepted underrepresented minority students. Each participating student is assigned a mentor who graduated from the PA Program and who is also an underrepresented minority. 

The last five matriculated classes of the Emory PA Program have consisted of 20% minority students with a graduation rate of 98% among these minority students.
