Where Past Undergraduate Participants Are Now

Loma Linda University’s Undergraduate Training Program (UTP) has successfully supported hundreds of underprivileged undergraduate students in the field of health sciences, introducing students to the principles of scientific research and study of health disparities.

Participants are taught more than just the fundamentals of biomedical research; they are also given solid career-building skills essential to success in any field, especially the biomedical and health sciences.

Consider the following successes:

  • Nearly 80% of UTP students have enrolled in a graduate school.
  • About 60% have enrolled in a doctorate program.
  • Many UTP alumni are now in residency programs nationwide or practicing in medically underserved communities.

Individual success stories of our past UTP program participants are numerous, including former medical student participants who are now university professors, biomedical scientists, academic researchers, and physicians studying health disparities nationwide. Clearly, students who go through this program have shown they are now contributing to the elimination of health disparities nationwide.

At Loma Linda University, we're not just taking about making a difference. Our UTP participants are already making a difference every day.
