The Cardea Fellows Program is a four-year, undergraduate fellowship committed to helping students who are underrepresented in health-related careers. Our goal is to enhance the competitive success and help establish a critical foundation in the natural sciences of students from diverse backgrounds who have otherwise been historically marginalized in medical communities. Through targeted programming, SAGE learning communities, extensive prehealth advising, as well as a robust living-learning community, we strive to create a sense of belonging and success for our fellows on their journeys into medicine and other health careers.
