Upcoming Community Events
Erick Deloera I graduated from UC Davis with a bachelor's degree in Neurobiology, Physiology, & Behavior in 2017. Shortly after, I became a certified EMT and spent a year working in patient transport in LA County. I am currently a student in the Post-Baccalaureate program at UC Irvine’s School of Medicine. While it's taken a lot of dedication to get where I am today, I believe that I’ve come this far because of all the wonderful mentors that have advised and inspired me throughout my journey. Being involved in the MIMS program ignited my passion to create change within underserved communities by closing the healthcare gap. I aspire to become a healthcare provider that provides medical services while also advocating for underserved communities. I'm confident that my past experiences along with the resources and mentors available at UCI will help me reach my goal of becoming a physician.
What others are saying about Mentoring in Medicine & Science…
“As a first generation college graduate in my family, I did not have anyone to go to in regards to my aspiration to become a doctor. MIMS has been there to mentor, advise, inspire, encourage, and drive me to accomplish my dreams. Connecting with other mentors and peers with a similar background provided me the support that was integral to the success of getting to medical school”
- Tony Tran, MIMS Alumni
“MIMS gave me the confidence to continue on my path and apply to medical school. The internship was the first time I had any clinical experience and I loved it! I received great mentorship and guidance in the application process. I also met other great students that I still keep in touch with today”
- Shanna Tucker, MIMS Alumni
“MIMS provided me with the opportunity to shadow in a clinical setting and get to learn more about the field of medicine. They also provided me with the opportunity to work closely with the community thus exposing me to different components and careers in health. This really reinforced my passion and desire to not only go into medicine but to work with underserved communities.”
