Medical Physician Preparation (MPP) Academy

A Division of the NAPCA Foundation

Empowering students with the tools and mindsets to define their life’s purpose/career path, break through their barriers, and take ownership of their future college and career aspirations.

MPP Academy Goal 2035

Our big goal is to increase the diversity among doctors who are underrepresented in the physician workforce from the current rate of 11% to 20% by 2035. We are committed to building a pipeline of future medical students, as early as 4th grade, that is more representative of the U.S. population.
