Mississippi Access for Rural Care (MARC)

MARC Medical Enrichment & Development (MMED)

Summer Program


The MARC Medical Enrichment & Development (MMED) program is a six-week medical enrichment program that provides informational, technical, and financial assistance to minority and disadvantaged college students who have a desire to work in primary health care in rural underserved areas of Mississippi after they obtain their prospective degrees.


THE GOAL of MMED is to offer courses that will increase the student’s proficiency in the disciplines that will assist the students in obtaining their health career goals, i.e. Math, Sciences, and Reasoning skills.  Further, the students will supplement their classroom education with clinical placements in rural underserved area Community Health Centers, clinics, private physicians’ offices, and hospitals.


THE CRITERIA for the program consists of minority and disadvantaged students entering their sophomore year and are enrolled in a Mississippi college/university. Participants are required to hold a 2.7 Grade Point Average (G.P.A.).  The program will be held on the campus of Coahoma Community College in Clarksdale, MS.   MMED II, designed for returning participants, will be held on the campus of Copiah-Lincoln Community College at Natchez.  The program will begin May and end July 2005.


Participation in MMED involves a full-time commitment (at least 40 hours per week) for 6 weeks.

  • Participants are provided a stipend of $1,200.00 after completing the six-week program.

  • Housing, meals, and transportation to clinical sites and official MMED activities will also be provided to participants.
