The Physician Scientist Training Program – Summer Program targets racial groups that have been historically underrepresented in the medical professions for their population size, and who face a health disparities gap. The program supports a pool of gifted students from minority populations with a training model from seventh grade through senior year of college. The students are rotated through basic science labs in academia, the National Institutes of Health, and the pharmaceutical industry.
The program is designed to produce candidates for medical degrees and dual medical/PhD programs, with comprehensive training initiatives that span the junior high school, high school, and college summers, using an integrated developmental regimen that prepares the students to successfully pursue a research career in medicine. High school students work in a laboratory, learning research skills.
HPREP is a high school pipeline program that meets once a month from October to June. HPREP exposes high school students to science-related activities while introducing them to careers in the health professions, stimulating academic and scientific interest in high school students as well as providing mentorship.
