Virginia Commonwealth University (VCU) Health Sciences and Health Careers Pipeline is excited to announce a comprehensive six-week interdisciplinary summer program. The Summer Academic Enrichment Program (SAEP) is available for upper-level undergraduate, post-baccalaureate, and recently graduated students interested in attending a health professions school here at VCU! Preference is given to those of a disadvantaged (educational, social or economic) background.
The program places a strong emphasis on enhancing the academic preparation of students approaching the application process. Upon completion of SAEP, participants will have the tools that will help them to assess their strengths and weaknesses in regards to application to a health professions school.
Highlights of SAEP include challenging coursework in the biological sciences, discipline-specific instruction, and engaging summer workshops. Students will apply to one of four tracks (dentistry, medicine, pharmacy, or physical therapy), and this will determine their discipline-specific course material. Participants are provided housing and a stipend to cover program expenses. SAEP will take place on the VCU MCV Campus from May 23, 2013- July 3, 2013. Please note that the application deadline is February 15, 2013.
Visit http://www.dhsd.vcu.edu/programs/college/saep.html for full program details and the online application. The SAEP application opened November 1st. An SAEP flyer is also available in the Health Professions office (e-mail Annie if you’d like it sent to you). Please contact them if you need any additional information – they’d be happy to answer any questions that you may have. Questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org , or call 804-827-0982.
