Research Opportunity for Academic Development in Science (ROADS)

Medical College of Wisconsin
Milwaukee, WI.
Type Academic Enrichment, High School Students


Encouraging young people from diverse backgrounds to pursue careers in science is a national priority, and the Medical College of Wisconsin (MCW) is committed to meeting this goal in our recruitment and admissions practices.

Several enrichment programs are offered to help historically underrepresented local high school, resident and non-resident college level students jump-start their exposure and develop a broad perspective about the array of careers available within biomedical research, medicine and allied health. Our hope is that this early exposure will ultimately lead to an increase in the number of graduates having diverse perspectives in medical education.

Each summer, the Office of Student Affairs/Diversity at MCW-Milwaukee offers  signature programs to promote diversity in the medical field and provide an exceptional gateway to clinical careers. Our summer enrichment programs are designed for students from backgrounds that are historically underrepresented in medicine and biomedical research.


Open to students who attend a high school in the Milwaukee Public School (MPS) system, Milwaukee charter or surrounding suburban school district.
