Medical programs at HBCUs in Florida?

Hey everyone, getting a bit anxious here about picking a college. I'm interested in medicine and I was wondering, does anyone know which HBCUs in Florida have strong medical programs? I'm hoping to stay close to home but also want to make sure I'm setting myself up for med school later on.

Hello there! It's completely understandable to feel a little anxious about making such an important decision. In Florida, there are a couple of HBCUs you might consider if you're looking at pre-med or related health programs.

Florida A&M University (FAMU) in Tallahassee offers a variety of health-related programs and has partnerships with medical schools and institutions in and around Tallahassee that provide pathways and support for students interested in pursuing careers in medicine—being in the state's capitals has its perks! In terms of pure academics, their Biology/Pre-Medicine Track is well-regarded and designed to prepare students for entry into medical school.

Additionally, Bethune-Cookman University has a College of Health Science that offers several programs that might interest you, such as Aging Studies or Health & Exercise Science, which can be great foundations for a medical career.

Remember, while it's important to look at a particular program's offerings, it's also important to consider other support systems the universities provide, such as advising, mentoring, and extracurricular opportunities, to enrich your pre-med journey. Best of luck with your decision – you're taking thoughtful steps towards your future in medicine!
