Students Training in Academia, Health, and Research (STAHR) Partnership is a two-part program to increase the number of students from disadvantaged backgrounds entering health care programs and to better prepare them for success.

Supported by a $3.2 million from the United States Health Resources and Services Administration, the program is a collaborative effort of the University of Missouri-Kansas City’s School of Medicine, School of Dentistry and School of Pharmacy.

Students from economically and educationally disadvantaged backgrounds typically succeed in attending and completing health professions degree programs at a far-lower rate than students from strong schools in thriving communities. The STAHR initiative is designed to improve those numbers.
