Our mission in solving the disparities between medicine, STEM, and the rising generation:
At Medicine Encompassed, we are a student-run 501(c)(3) nonprofit aiming to promote awareness and increase accessibility for those interested in future medical careers through various mediums. With a team of STEM-oriented individuals that are also passionate about biology, we are seeking to demonstrate the wide scope of what medicine encompasses. Recognizing the importance of expanding the medical field, our organization believes in accepting people from all backgrounds under one common interest. By bridging the gap between medicine, underrepresented minorities, and students from low-income backgrounds, our team of like-minded individuals is dedicated to creating more resources and opportunities in all medical fields.
Because Medicine Encompassed is led by high school students, in which some of our members come from disadvantaged / underprivileged backgrounds, our team is attuned to the existing problems lying within this field. This enables us to develop a direct network between our organization's team and the individuals that we are aiming to serve.
Only 16% of jobs in STEM / STEAM are currently dominated by minority groups.
Only ONE-THIRD of workers in STEM have completed a bachelor's degree (or higher) .
With the prevalence of such disparities in associated fields,
