Description:
Established by the ROBERT WOOD JOHNSON FOUNDATION (RWJF), the SUMMER HEALTH PROFESSIONS EDUCATION PROGRAM (SHPEP) is a free, six-week career-enrichment program for college freshman and sophomore students, interested in a career within the health professions. The program has been shaping careers and changing the lives of premedical and predental college students for 27 years, formerly as the Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP). Today, the SHPEP initiative has expanded to include other health careers, such as nursing, pharmacy, physician assistant and public health.

At UTHealth, the McGovern Medical School, School of Dentistry, School of Nursing and School of Public Health are partners in offering the SHPEP. Undergraduate students interested in any of these health professions are encouraged to apply.
