Mission Statement

Paging Dr. Tomorrow: HESP

Welcome to the Health Equity Scholars Program
at the University of Michigan Medical School!

HESP is a student-led group of University of Michigan medical students whose mission is to provide its members with opportunities to learn about and engage with issues in health equity through service-learning projects, seminars led by community leaders, site visits to local organizations, and mentorship. Through these experiences, members cultivate their understanding of health disparities and develop the skills needed to pursue health equity in the future. We also seek to promote the inclusion of such opportunities into the standard medical school curriculum.


Thank you for your interest!
