Summer Health Professions Education Program - Columbia University

 

 

Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) - Columbia University*

SHPEP is implemented at 12 universities across the nation. Each institution provides scholars with academic enrichment in the basic sciences and math, clinical experiences, career development activities, learning and study skills seminars, and a financial planning workshop. Program sites vary on how they deliver each of these required components and their program start date.  Program types include dental, medicine, nursing, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy and public health.  

SHPEP at Columbia University Irving Medical Center provides students interested in pursuing a career within the health professions with a well-defined, integrated approach to learning, focusing on the core science curriculum needed to apply to health professions schools for medicine, dentistry, nursing, physical therapy, public health, nutrition, and occupational therapy. Students will engage in intense coursework, labs, learning-skills, and career development courses during the six weeks of the program while participating in practical experiences and seminars.
