About the Program

Pulso Scholars program is a comprehensive pipeline program specially designed to promote academic and professional success among Carolina students interested in medical school and other health professions. Scholars participate in a series of workshops aimed at providing academic, professional, and cultural development and overall preparation to apply to medical school or other health-related programs.



  • Academic Success – Scholars participate in seminars, workshops, professional development, and course planning to prepare them to make them the most competitive applicants to selective professional schools.

  • Networking – Scholars will meet and engage faculty, administrators, graduate professional students, alumni and other community leaders.
  • Community – Scholars will meet medical students who identify as being from historically underrepresented backgrounds and participate in outreach activities.



  • Pre-health advising

  • Scholarship building through inter-disciplinary discussions of health

  • Discussions on financial wellness, time management, mental health care, and strategies for navigating the university experience
