Why we support Medical Scholars
WMI's goal for building medical scholars network
WMI is building a strong network for medical scholars which will help them with career development in different fields, which in turn helps them give back to their communities.
Many of the graduate scholars have progressed beyond earning their bachelors degrees with advanced certifications, training opportunities, masters degrees and also specializations. Their backgrounds and experiences allow them to support and guide one another with different perspectives.
What support does WMI provide Medical Scholars?
In 2022, the WMI team expanded by adding the role of a new WMI Medical Scholar Coordinator to bring the medical scholars together through a platform where they share their experiences and challenges in the medical field.
In addition to the goal of funding their undergraduate studies, and standing alongside them to address any challenges so that they successfully complete their studies, we provide life-long support after graduation. This includes professional development and social entrepreneurship training, community development grants to start and grow their own community projects and businesses, and medical-related online webinars.
