We diversify medicine
Our mission is to create a world where physicians are representative of the patients they serve. The admissions consulting industry leaves behind those who need it the most and perpetuates underrepresentation in medicine. Elevation Med Prep disrupts this pattern by making top-tier admissions consulting accessible to everyone—regardless of their ability to pay.
How we do it
We are a social enterprise. With every sale that we make, our 1-for-1 model sponsors one of our services for free to an applicant from an underrepresented, low-income, or disadvantaged background. Apply here.
Behind our 1-for-1 model are individual stories. Mope is a daughter of immigrants from Nigeria, and her goal since childhood was to become a doctor. Throughout college, Mope worked as a waitress to supplement her education costs. She faced numerous socioeconomic barriers that many of her peers never had to. Paying for professional medical school admissions consulting simply wasn’t an option.
Through our 1-for-1 model, Mope received free medical school admissions consulting. Her Elevation Journey included mentorship from a medical student who had walked a similar path. Mope was recently accepted into her top-choice medical school!
