2019 Medstart Teacher Form header
Welcome to the 2019 MedStart Teacher Recommendation Form!

Please provide an assessment of the student's suitability as a participant in the one-week MedStart summer program by March 15th. The program is open to current sophomores and juniors (students who will be juniors and seniors in the fall of 2019). 150 students will be accepted statewide.  Students may also be eligible for merit scholarships to cover their tuition costs based on academics, interest and motivation.

We are interested in mature, responsible, and motivated students who have:

  • Previously demonstrated on interest in health careers (or could benefit from learning about such options)
  • Demonstrated past academic achievement, or whom you feel are academically promising but who grades may not currently reflect this

Students who meet one or more of the following criteria are strongly encouraged to apply:

  • Under-represented minority
  • From a rural area
  • Economically disadvantage
  • From a family in which neither parents are college graduates
