The National Postbaccalaureate Collaborative (NPBC) is a partnership of Postbaccalaureate (PBPs) dedicated to helping promising college graduates from disadvantaged and underrepresented backgrounds get into and success in medical school. This study aims to determine long-term program outcomes by looking at PBP graduates, who are now practicing physicians, in terms of health care service to the poor and underserved and contribution to health care workforce diversity.
