1981-1982 Evaluation Report of The University of Southern California School of Medicine Med-Cor Program: One of the Predominantly Hispanic, Black, Asian and Other Non-Anglo (PHBAO) Programs.
Med-Cor is a program designed to improve the maturation, interest, and academic skill level of junior and senior high school students. The program is jointly sponsored by the University of Southern California School of Medicine and the Los Angeles Unified School District. Students are tutored with the expectation that their academic skills will increase to the extent that they qualify for acceptance by colleges and/or university health professional schools. Participating students are from predominantly Hispanic, Black, Asian, and other Non-Anglo (PHBAO) schools; and consequently, the program is a part of the district's master plan for integration. Med-Cor embraces three specific goals of PHBAO programs, to privide students opportunity to: (1) improve self-esteem, (2) improve levels of academic achievement, and (3) obtain access to postgraduate educational and employment opportunities. The evaluation report covering the summer program of 1981, a follow-up survey of the June 1981 graduates of Med Cor, and the Saturday program conducted during the 1981-82 school year found that the program is meeting its major goal of helping students become qualified and accepted by colleges and/or university health professional schools.
