NMF’s vision is to empower and support aspiring physicians and health professionals underrepresented in medicine to contribute to the health of our nation.  

We envision a diverse healthcare workforce which will have the leadership, commitment and cultural competency to achieve health equity.  

NMF’s mission is to provide scholarships and support for underrepresented minority students in medicine and the health professions.

Founded in 1946, NMF was one of America’s first diversity organizations. Today, as we come together to celebrate our diversity with joy and new purpose, NMF remains the only national organization solely dedicated to providing scholarships to medical and health professions students in all groups underrepresented in healthcare.  

NMF is supported by a national network of Alumni who serve tens of millions of patients annually. Their experience inspires us and gives voice to our mission.
