TIP is a seven?week residential program designed to increase the representation and active participation of underrepresented groups in the healthcare field. TIP provides a unique opportunity for these students to become equipped for what we hope is eventual matriculation into one of the programs at UTHSC.

TIP offers activities designed to assist students in realizing their career goals, as well as year?round advice/support.
