The Undergraduate Health Sciences Academy (UHSA) at Morehouse School of Medicine was created in response to the growing need for health care professionals in Georgia’s underserved urban and rural communities.  The program recruits current undergraduate students matriculating at CAU and the other institutions in the Atlanta University Center Consortium (AUCC). Through STEM courses and other interventions, the academy’s goal is to add to Georgia’s healthcare workforce while also diversifying that workforce in the state and nation.

Objectives are to improve students’ critical thinking and problem-solving skills, enhance standardized test preparation, and provide science-enriched coursework to foster new interest in medicine and health professions.  You can apply for UHSA during your Freshman year.  Applications are posted through HPAU during the Spring Semester.
