what we do
NMF seeks to increase the pipeline of doctors, nurses and physician assistants who have the professional knowledge, cultural competency and commitment to provide quality healthcare for all members of our diverse society.
NMF achieves this by:
There is a shortage of physicians and other healthcare professionals in the United States, especially in medically underserved communities and communities of color. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges, it is estimated that the US will be short anywhere from 46,000 to 90,000 physicians by 2025. Combined with an aging population and the approximately 30 million currently uninsured Americans who will become eligible for healthcare services as a result of the Affordable Care Act, we are facing a looming healthcare crisis.
