Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP)

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. SHPEP’s goal is to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of students underrepresented in the health professions and prepare them for a successful application and matriculation to health professions schools. 

SHPEP at the University of Nebraska Medical Center (UNMC) provides scholars with an interest in Medicine, Dentistry, Nursing, and Public Health with academic enrichment in the basic sciences and math, clinical experiences, career development activities, learning and study skills seminars, and a financial planning workshop. 

The application for the SHPEP opens November 1, 2020 and closes February 5, 2021 at 11:59 p.m. ET. We encourage you to submit your application early. Applications are accepted through the online application at the national SHPEP program website.

The SHPEP National Program Office has instructed all of its partner sites to prepare for virtual program delivery for the summer of 2021. 

SHPEP at UNMC Virtual Program Dates: June 13 - July, 23, 2021
