SHPEP: Shaping Careers. Changing Lives.

The FREE 6-week Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) is a transformative summer experience for students interested in the health professions. The program offers opportunities to explore dentistry, medicine, and other health careers, including nursing, optometry, pharmacy, physical therapy, and public health.

Housed at the University of Washington School of Medicine, SHPEP is open to freshman and sophomores interested in the health professions and to those students who have been historically underrepresented in healthcare.

The program will take place at the University of Washington from June 20 through July 29, 2022 and is scheduled to be in person. Room and board is free. Travel and attendance stipends are offered.  

Application are open now and close February 5, 2022.
