NAM is a four-week summer enrichment program for undergraduate students interested in pursuing health careers. Participants work in small groups to problem-solve case studies related to American Indian health. Dates for 2017 are June 26 – July 21 at the University of Minnesota Medical School Duluth campus.

Program instructors include a broad range of Native American faculty, health professionals, traditional elders, and medical students. Accepted NAM students earn a stipend for living expenses. Campus housing is also available for those traveling from outside the Duluth region.


The residential summer program within Native Americans Into Medicine is an six-week program based around three basic educational components. The enrichment areas are math and biochemistry, health care in diverse communities, and study skills and computer skills. Each summer a different body system is chosen as a focus. During Summer 2004, students will learn about neurology and toxicology. The course reflects the content and pace of medical school.
