The mission of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus B2MR Program is to provide multi-dimensional mentoring and research training in biomedical research for underrepresented post-baccalaureate students to succeed in top-tier MD or MD-PhD programs.

Despite the growing diversity within the US population, there is a low percentage of MD or MD-PhD physician-scientists that are either Black or African American, Hispanic or Latino, American Indian or Alaska Native, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, have disabilities, or are from a disadvantaged background. B2MR aims to address the challenges that impact underrepresented scholars and support them in their pursuit of earning an MD or MD-PhD and ultimately embarking on a career as a physician-scientist in biomedical research.
B2MR provides unique opportunities to its students on the Anschutz Medical Campus, with access to both research and clinical facilities on a single campus, along with a robust MD-PhD program on campus. B2MR is supported by the CU School of Medicine Program to Advance Physician Scientists and Translational Research.
