We are inspired by the countless health care professionals who go beyond the call of duty in improving the health and well-being of societies around the world. Whitetulip Health Foundation aims to nurture this ethos of giving and service in our medical communities at home and abroad.

- Quarterly meeting with the participants and mentors: Mentors with different health care training backgrounds will meet with participants to discuss future career goals of participants.

Adapting to US Health Care System is challenging for an immigrant or refugee with healthcare training background. Due to the complexity of the integration process, many individuals need assistance. We believe our program would facilitate the integration of immigrants/refugees with health care training background into US Health Care System which would foster diversity among health care providers.
