Over 10 Years
While in medical school, Dr. Jimenez developed the Students of Medicine program to provide guidance to premedical students from underserved areas. Over a decade and hundreds of students later, Dr. Jimenez remains personally involved with each phase of the program.
In high school, Dr Jimenez was told becoming a doctor would be too ambitious. With two older brothers pursuing medicine at the time, he was still able to access the guidance he needed to eventually reach the Ivy League in medical school. He developed this program to make sure those with dreams of medicine always had access to effective guidance.
A critical component of the program is building confidence in students in believing they can fulfill their dreams of becoming a doctor one day. Through the virtual ER, and other components, students start picturing themselves in those shoes. We believe there is great power in that visualization.
Students learn about many topics covered in medical school. This includes normal and abnormal functioning of organ systems, prevention, and more. This way, they can begin taking an active role in supporting the health of their own households, where most of our students will be the first generation graduating high school or attending college.
"My counselors in high school thought medical school was too ambitious for me ...I created the Students of Medicine program so students from any background can get the support they need to fulfill their dreams in medicine"
