A crucial mission of the UC Irvine School of Medicine is to educate highly qualified physicians to serve the diverse populations of California. The Program in Medical Education for the Latino Community (PRIME LC) was designed to help fulfill this mission.
The five-year combined Medical Degree/Masters training Program responds to an increasing demand for physician-leaders who are culturally sensitive and linguistically competent to address the specific needs of California's Latinos.
Students from all backgrounds are eligible for enrollment in the program.
