In 1978, recognizing the need for increased minority participation in
health related professional fields, the University of Washington Health
and Sciences Minority Students Program (H&S-MSP) was initiated.
Today the H&S-MSP is located in the Warren B. Magnuson Health Center,
An advocacy program, the H&S-MSP supports high school through
professional/graduate school students in fulfilling their career goals
through innovative support programming and academic counseling.
The goals and objectives of the H&S-MSP are reflective of the needs
identified by students of color, academic advisers, counselors, faculty,
and administrative staff within the various health sciences schools and
departments. This alliance with the various schools and departments, as
well as with other programs for minority, underrepresented, and
disadvantaged students, has allowed for continual updating of program
components which assist students of color in successfully meeting the
challenges within the academic setting.
