FSU College of Medicine recognized for undergraduate pipeline program

A Florida State University College of Medicine program is the recipient of the 2021 Inspiring Programs in STEM Award from INSIGHT Into Diversity magazine.

The program — Undergraduate Science Students Together Reaching Instructional Diversity and Excellence (USSTRIDE) — is an extension of the College of Medicine’s pipeline outreach program (SSTRIDE), which identifies middle school and high school students with an aptitude for science and math and the potential to become a successful medical student and provides support services to steer them on their chosen path.

The program launched in 1993 to support Florida State’s Program In Medical Sciences, the forerunner to the College of Medicine.

The Inspiring Programs in STEM Award honors colleges and universities that encourage and assist students from underrepresented groups to enter the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics.

Nearly 10% of FSU College of Medicine alumni participated in USSTRIDE, which has helped the university develop one of the nation’s most diverse medical schools.

Dr. John P. Fogarty is dean of the FSU College of Medicine.
