Medical Career Advancement

Medical Career Advancement at the International Institute is a program offering guidance for individuals who want to advance their careers in the medical field. Program participants receive individualized academic advising and support while in college and during early employment.

To be considered for a scholarship, students must be current students in an LPN or RN nursing program.
