Our vision and mission are based on years of research
Founded in 1983 to advance the study and promotion of primary care, our organization has identified that the key to developing the primary care workforce is to start at the high school and college level.
We target our efforts where the research demonstrates we can make the most difference: identifying and assisting undergraduate students that are most likely to practice in underserved communities.
We provide a variety of services, including the Student Doctor Network community forums, How-To guides, and the Premed Planner application.
From its humble beginnings in 1999, the Student Doctor Network community forums have grown to become the largest community for pre-health and health students across the US and Canada. We have helped hundreds of thousands of students in their quest to become doctors.
