U-M provides mentoring, training to inspire minority students’ interest in medicine

Cass Technical High School in Detroit has partnered with the U-M Medical School as part of a larger effort to connect the U-M with high schools in under-served areas and to stimulate minority students’ interest in medical careers.

The partnership to train the doctors of tomorrow will focus on academic preparation, career enrichment, individual mentoring and hands-on training.

Throughout the year at the U-M, Cass Tech students will be exposed to a variety of experiences to further their interest in science and medicine, including spending a day in the anatomy lab, participating in a virtual surgical training session at the Clinical Simulation Center and experiencing how to conduct an operation using the da Vinci® Robotic Surgical System.
