Summer Medical and Dental Education ProgramLocation: Howard University, Washington DC
Due Date: March 1, 2018
Description: The Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) at Howard University provides an outstanding academically enriched program that contributes to a culture of health and promotes diversity in health care. The program is designed to strengthen the academic proficiency and overall professional school readiness of talented students from groups that are disadvantaged and traditionally underrepresented in the health care professions. A major goal of the SHPEP is to prepare the next generation of healthcare providers for their role in advancing the health of all communities throughout the U.S.A. Scholars gain a unique insight to the health professions through a rigorous, team-based, interprofessional, and culturally competent curriculum. The program invites everyone to apply, especially those from all minority, socioeconomically, and/or educationally disadvantaged groups that are interested in pursuing careers in healthcare, and serving underserved communities.
