UTHSC Diversity Day for Prospective Students

UTHSC Diversity Day

Increasing diversity in the health workforce is paramount to address healthcare disparities in the United States, and the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) is doing its part by offering Diversity Day on November 12, 2011 for all students with an interest in health professions. Diversity Day is being offered in conjunction with UTHSC's celebration of 50 Years of African American Achievement that will also include information about summer programs like the Summer Research Scholars (SRS) program and more.

UTHSC is also diverse in the professional degree programs being offered, and the diverse degree offerings demonstrate UTHSC's commitment to increase diversity in the health care work workforce of Tennessee. If you are a currently enrolled college student or college graduate interested in a health profession degree through the University of Tennessee Health Science Center please complete the Diversity Day registration form.
