Maria Manriquez MD FACOG a University of Arizona College of Medicine – Tucson alumni, directs and supervises activities of pre-matriculation curriculum for pipeline programs.

One of the premier programs is the Pathway Scholars Program (PSP), which is a master in medical studies. Ten students are selected by the admission committee for the PSP to spend a year optimizing learning styles, leadership principles, and fundamental basic sciences before beginning medical school.

The students are selected as either being identified as underrepresented in medicine or committed to serving an underrepresented population in their ultimate physician practice.
