Welcome!

This page is designed as a hub for pre-health students at the University of Louisville. Hosted by the Health Science Center Office of Diversity and Inclusion at the University of Louisville, we welcome and embrace our community of students, faculty, and staff. We strive to continue promoting an environment of inclusiveness through the understanding and celebration of the many differences in perspectives, thoughts, experiences, belief systems, and cultures of our students, faculty, and staff. With this goal in mind, it is our intention to provide support toward our efforts of excellence in education, community outreach, and research.

Our website aims to provide a platform for pre-health students at the University of Louisville to explore resources, programs, student support options, and student organizations from across the University. The HSC Office of Diversity and Inclusion places a major emphasis on increasing the number of students from racial/ethnic groups designated as underrepresented into the health professions system. Emphasis is also given to recruiting, retaining and promoting a diverse workforce here at the Health Sciences Center for our schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing, and public health.

Our hope is that this resource empowers pre-health students to feel confident, prepared, and successful in all their healthcare endeavors. Any comments, questions, or concerns regarding this resource may be directed to Ms. Shirley Wu (Program Coordinator Senior) at shirley.wu@louisville.edu.
