Summer Pre-Medical Enrichment Program (SPEP) is a program for disadvantaged students which aims to strengthen analytical reasoning, problem-solving skills for learning, and test-taking skills. The program exposes students to medical curriculum, and clinical aspects of medicine. It also provides physician mentors and familiarization with medical school admissions processes. SPEP students will receive a total stipend of $1500, as well as books and materials and reimbursement for travel expenses. On-campus housing is available at a small cost.
