I inspire students

to overcome fear and self-doubt

so that they can confidently decide

if a career in medicine and science

is right for them.

I help physicians and scientists

go outside of their comfort zone

to explore careers

beyond the clinic or academic lab.​

PAOLA MINA-OSORIO 2023

​As an immigrant physician and scientist, I'm devoted to helping first-generation Hispanic/Latinx aspiring doctors and scientists. Together, we'll conquer imposter syndrome, lack of role models, language barriers, and limited family support, forging a path to success!

My books and keynote speeches provide information about the importance of equal representation in science and medicine, motivation to pursue your dream of becoming a doctor despite the obstacles, and inspiration by sharing the stories of other immigrant and first-generation Hispanic/Latinx physicians and scientists who have shown us that   ¡si se puede!

THIS IS HOW I WANT TO HELP YOU:

My heart sank when she said she’s been the only Latina in the room. It makes me want to work harder to support URM students. I was also shocked that we make up 22% of young adults and so few apply to medical school.
