S.T.E.P. Program

One Step Closer to your Dreams

Program Description and Purpose

The MWCF S.T.E.P program is organized to encourage, empower, support, and guide underrepresented students during their academic journey within the fields of healthcare. 



The S.T.E.P program is for students in their last year of college or in their gap year who will be applying for the first time or reapplying to graduate or professional school (medical, nursing, pharmacy, veterinary, optometry, PA, PT, OT) for the next cycle.


The program will include:

  • Mentoring

  • Workshops to assist with application processes, personal statement review, study and interviewing skills, test-taking strategies, and time management, just to name a few

  • Application Preparation 

  • Test preparation (self-study) with resources and study plans. 

  • Science Saturdays will offer a curriculum with scientific methodologies, basic science review, and preparation for entrance exams

  • Professional/Clinical/Hands-on experience through research or community projects, shadowing, or volunteer activities

  • Balancing Mental Health in Healthcare

Mentorship and Tutoring Services

Are you in high school or still in college classes and do not qualify for the full S.T.E.P. program? Are you looking to just receive mentoring or tutoring? Apply separately so we can understand your specific needs. The goal is to help students to reach their purpose in healthcare.
