This is a brand-new, year-long cluster piloted for the 2024-25 academic year. Participants will be enrolled in a full complement of courses that meet recommended first-year courses for medical school, as well as a hub course on the histories of race and immigration in public health debates, and a first-year writing course on writing for the biological sciences. Students will be enrolled in all courses for the fall semester of their first year, with a full unit load (13 units).
