Services for Students
The UND INMED Program offers a series of support services for students, including:
Tutoring is available for each INMED student on request, and weekly group sessions in core area courses can be arranged. The INMED tutoring program is very helpful for students to enhance and strengthen foundations in math and science.
The INMED program offers health education sessions, educators and health professionals. These workshops focus on major Indian health issues, and have addressed such health topics as diabetes, alcoholism, domestic violence, tuberculosis, and hypertension.
During college and professional school, Indian Health Service-funded scholarship students can obtain "hands-on" experience through IHS externships at Indian health facilities. INMED has assisted with placement for many students at their home reservations. The program has also placed participating students in summer research experiences that focus on Indian health needs and issues.
Student Loan Fund
INMED maintains a Stan Gaurdipee Memorial Student Loan Fund for emergency loans to help students through financial crises situations. The fund has helped many students stay in school through difficult times.
