About Us

The Horizons program is a mentoring organization in which medical school students from Case Western School of Medicine and undergraduates from Case Western Reserve University come together to form close knit groups with high-school students for the benefit of all three levels of students. The mission of Horizons is to utilize the field of medicine to empower inner city teenagers as learners and teachers, in order to support their intrinsic motivations to achieve academically. Through a combination of clinical exposure, problem-based learning, role model exposure, and self-reflection, this program seeks to help close our nation’s academic achievement gap among students of varying racial and socioeconomic demographics.

Why Join?

Member's Benefits

The goal of this program is to empower students from Cleveland to pursue careers in medicine. Thus, we anticipate the benefits to student participants will include empowerment, inspiration, education, mentorship, and resources that are conducive to their path to medicine. Specifically members will have the opportunity to partner with Case Western medical students, become a mentor for neighboring high school students, shadow doctors, and volunteer in medical related events.
