VCU Summer Academic Enrichement Program

SAEP is an intensive, six-week inter-professional academic enrichment program designed around an inter-professional framework that includes:

· Introduction to the rigor of first-year health professions courses at VCU through three professional-level science courses

· Discipline specific instruction time (dentistry, medicine, pharmacy, physical therapy)
· Workshops on admissions, professionalism, test-taking and learning skills
· Individual and group advising
· Mock interviews
· Seminars on current and relevant health sciences topics
· Community service opportunities
· Networking and social events
Students may apply to one of four tracks (dentistry, medicine, pharmacy or physical therapy), which will determine their discipline specific concentration.  Upon completion of the program, participants will have the tools that will help them to assess their strengths and weaknesses in regards to application into a health professions school.  Participants are provided with housing and a stipend to cover program expenses. Full program details, as well as the program application can be accessed from our website:  SAEP will take place in Richmond, VA on the MCV Campus of Virginia Commonwealth University from May 21- July 2, 2014.

The application deadline is February 15, 2014!
