Mission Statement

doctor checking heartbeatThe Pipeline Educational Program at the Perelman School of Medicine of the University of Pennsylvania is a multi-tiered educational initiative that teaches fundamental principles of medicine to medically underrepresented and underserved public high school students in Philadelphia.  The mission of the program is to provide mentorship and education at all levels:  High school students are taught by undergraduates, who learn from medical students who, in turn, are guided by physicians. The program provides a valuable means for college students, medical trainees, physicians-in-training and faculty at the University of Pennsylvania to contribute meaningfully to their surrounding community.

We invite you to explore the materials presented in this website to learn more about the Pipeline program and our approach to medical education and mentorship.
