Summer Opportunities

“Summa, Summa, Summa time  Time to sit back and unwind??…not for the aspiring prehealth student!

It’s hard to even think of the summer with it being 36 degrees outside, but trust me, it will be here before you know it.  Don’t let your summer pass you by.  Be proactive. Be prepared and keep your goal in mind ( a happy, healthy career in healthcare).  I think every summer during the academic journey of prehealth students should be filled with some meaningful activity that somehow  positively propels them in the direction of their dreams.

Before you delve into the extensive list of programs below, take a quick look at some frequently asked questions regarding summer opportunities from directors of the SMDEP program ( which I’m huge fan of!)
