IVMS IS A PRODUCT THE INSTITUTE FOR MINORITY PHYSICIANS OF THE FUTURE
IMPF is a collective voice of African American, Native American, Hispanic American and progressive European American physicians and medical scientists. IMPF believes that the root cause of minority under-representation in United States medical schools is academic disadvantage borne by lack of access to high-quality high school and college preparation. Consequently, IMPF mission is to become a leading organizational force for parity in medical education by helping minority students develop the skills that will enable them to compete on a more equal footing in the medical school admission process, and once in medical school, provide them with learning aids from the best medical education communities around the world. The Institute for Minority Physicians of the Future elucidates, distills and fuses educational psychology, information technology and undergraduate medical education data; and then develops programs, projects and products that serve to increase recruitment, admission and retention (RAR) of Under-represented in Medicine (URM) in major United States medical schools. The ultimate goal being for these students to defend, define and develop medical careers that will be committed to the elimination of health disparities in racial/ethnic minorities and the poor.
IMPF is a national professional educational organization representing the interest of minority high school and college students with the aptitude and desire to become physicians and medical scientists. Established in 1999, the collective body is committed to the vision of improving the health and well-being of future U.S. generations by increasing the minority physician/medical scientist workforce in such a way that the professions of medicine and biomedical research are reflective of the racial/ethnic profiles of the people physicians and medical scientists will serve. IMPF’s vision is directly linked to the AAMC data minority physicians are four times more likely than are others to practice in undeserved communities. Such communities are more frequently than not overwhelmingly populated by racial/ethnic minorities.
IMPF core strategy is to identify, inform, recruit, assist, advise and educate promising African-American, Native-American, and Hispanic-American, high school and college students in order to increase the number of minority medical students and PhD. candidates in United States medical schools.
