Multicultural Recruitment Day Conference (MRDC)




37th Annual

Multicultural Recruitment

Day Conference



The Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs of Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons hosts its annual recruitment conference during the spring. The purpose of this annual conference is to provide underrepresented and disadvantaged premedical high school, undergraduate, and postgraduate students with pertinent information about medical school. The conference will address the issue of the critically low number of underrepresented physicians in today's medical field as well as provide information related to medical school admissions requirements, retention, student life, and advantages and opportunities offered to students at P&S.

Through a series of workshops and a keynote address, conference participants will become informed about:

  • Medical School Admissions
  • Financial Aid
  • Research Opportunities
  • The Transition from College to Medical School
  • Other Related Topics
