The Future Medical Education and Development Introductory Course (MEDIC) is a medical student-led program designed to inspire primary school students in underserved communities by sharing a passion for medicine through hands-on activities and interprofessional guest speakers. A five-point Likert scale pre- and postsurvey assessed the impact of Future MEDIC. Results were analyzed with Mann Whitney’s U Test. Students were engaged in interactive activities, although this did not correlate with an interest in joining the health care field. Students expressed that they had resources to pursue a medical career, and we hope that continuing Future MEDIC will strengthen students’ perception of achieving their career goals.
