About our program

The Heritage College’s Aspiring D.O.ctors Precollege Program is a comprehensive, STEM-based pipeline program targeting high school students from historically underrepresented backgrounds to foster their interest in pursuing careers in science and health care. Since its inception in 2016, the Aspiring D.O.ctors program has cultivated a pipeline of more than 162 talented students from surrounding communities through participation in academic enrichment and hands-on learning activities. The main objective of the program is to inspire these young minds to embrace a variety of disciplines as keys to success and to foster skills that will help them become lifelong learners. The Cleveland campus partners with Warrensville Heights High School and High Tech Academy through Cuyahoga Community College to deliver this program to selected high school students.
