What is U-DICE?

  • The U-DICE program emphasizes the opportunity for accessibility for underrepresented medical school applicants who usually do not have the same access to shadowing physicians, and volunteering in a clinical setting, particularly with the COVID-19 pandemic. U-DICE students will enjoy the opportunity to gain general insight on cardiology-related learning material ahead of their medical school application. It provides Black and Indigenous applicants with a communal setting for making their goals feel attainable through one-on-one communication with doctors, medical students, and residents within their community, thereby humanizing the application process with a message of belonging and inclusion. In addition, specific U-DICE programming will include:

  • 1 hour-long Q&A session between U-DICE and DICE students to discuss tips and resources for their medical school application, life as a med student, and examples of how to secure research positions at an undergraduate level.

  • Attend monthly virtual sessions designed for medical students in order to obtain understanding on various aspects of a career in cardiology.

  • A 1-hour session, in October, to discuss strategies and resources for successfully completing MCAT.



  • BIPOC pre-med students are encouraged to apply for the U-DICE 2021-2022 program which runs from September 2021 to May 2022.

  • Applicants should write a statement of interest on why they’re interested in joining this program, what they hope to gain from this experience, and summarize their interest in Cardiology (500 words).

  • Number of U-DICE applicants accepted for the 2021-2022 school year: 3.
