HEALTH-RELATED INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

The Pre-Professional Health Careers Advisory Program (PHCAP)  works with departments across campus to provide information about student internship opportunities. Below is a brief list of programs to consider as you expand your prehealth experiences. 

 

 

Kristara Lewis (Biology Major, B.S. '12) Constanza Aranda (Biology Major, B.S. '11) were Tuskegee University students that were accepted into the Summer Health Enrichment Program (SHEP) at UAB. 

Summer Health Enrichment Program (SHEP)

The University of Alabama at Birmingham offers a Summer Health Enrichment Program (SHEP) at the School of Medicine.  The SHEP is designed to offer talented undergraduate students from the state of Alabama an experience that will enhance their opportunity for a career in medicine. Instruction in professionalism, basic science, interviewing skills, clinical and research experiences, MCAT preparation and exposure to ethnically and culturally diverse workplaces are program components that will enable participants to increase their ability to become competitive in the medical school process.  Applications are available on the University of Alabama at Birmingham website.

 



Marcellus Edwards (Biology Major, B.S. '14) and Olivia Davis(Biology Major, B.S. '14) are Tuskegee University students that were accepted Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP).  Marcellus spent the summer at Yale University and Olivia went to Howard University.

Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP)

The Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP) is an intensive academic preparation program hosted on several campuses (Case Western Reserve University, Columbia University, Duke University, Howard University, University of California-Los Angeles, UMDNJ-New Jersey Medical and New Jersey Dental, University of Louisville, University of Nebraska, University of Virginia, University of Washington, University of Texas-Houston, Yale University) that offer medical or dental programs.  The SMDEP focuses on students in the first two years of their college education because the experience of previous programs indicates that this is when students derive the most benefit.   The main goal of the SMDEP is to increase the number of highly qualified medical school applicants from minority groups that were underrepresented in medicine.  Applications are available on the SMDEP  website.
