The Need

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 more than 130,000 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.

“NMF supported me 36 years ago in my medical career as a student, and they continue to help light the path for young people of color who seek to serve their communities.”
