Lang Youth Medical Program

Lang Youth Medical Program is a six-year science education and mentoring program for middle school students. It is sponsored by NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital. The program aims to inspire, support, and motivate young people in the Washington Heights neighborhood of Manhattan to realize their college and career aspirations, especially in the health sciences.

One of the program’s main objectives is to create meaningful mentoring relationships with Columbia medical students, residents, faculty, staff, and administrators. The program takes place every Saturday during the school year and during four weeks in the summer. You can become involved in the program as an advisor for the weekly program or as a mentor at lunches, bowling trips, movie nights, and more.
