Health Professions Students
The Native American Center for Health Professions (NACHP) creates a community of support that stays with you throughout your experience. We connect you with educational and networking opportunities, and provide coaching and advising throughout the various stages of applying to, and pursuing, a health professional degree program.
MD Admitted Student Visit

To help you make your decision, we work with the school’s Office of MD Admissions and the Office of Multicultural Affairs to arrange meetings with NACHP staff and current students, and an admitted student reception.
