Summer 2021 Health Professions Education Program

The Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) is a free summer enrichment program focused on improving access to information and resources for college students interested in the health professions.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, physical distancing guidelines, and the closure of some campuses, SHPEP will again be a 100% virtual experience in summer 2021. The pandemic necessitated virtual implementation of SHPEP in 2020, and we are proud that the program was successfully delivered online to more than 930 scholars last summer. Therefore, the National Program Office is confident in the ability of our program sites to once again provide a valuable and transformative online experience to 2021 SHPEP scholars.

Please continue to monitor our website for updates on the status of SHPEP 2021.
