The values that drive us forward.

We have three core values that inform everything we do at Outset. These values are simple, but every decision we make about programming or strategy is guided by these principles.

Safety First

Our primary value as a company will always be the safety of our students & programs.

Pre-med Education

We want every student to leave Outset feeling prepared for the pre-med path.

Fun & Community

We want students to build a network and friendships with other NC pre-meds.
