Recognizing the value of increasing the diversity in our student body, and considering the low number of minority students who apply to the Southern Illinois University Edwardsville Professional Healthcare programs, we have developed a 1 week summer camp for rising high school sophomores, juniors and seniors with an interest in pursuing a degree in healthcare. The aim of the summer camp is to expose students to careers in healthcare offered at SIUE. Students will be exposed to Pharmacy, Nursing and Dental Medicine.
Students selected will spend 5 days at the SIUe Schools of Pharmacy, Nursing and Dental Medicine, learning about each profession and developing skills that will be useful to them in becoming a successful college student. The program is open to minority rising sophomores, juniors and seniors enrolled in a Madison, St. Clair or St. Louis County high school. Participants will spend 4 evenings in SIUe Student Housing, interacting with other participants, college students and faculty members. The program is free of charge to participants.
The 2016 SIUE Healthcare Diversity Summer Camp will be held the week of June 20 - 24, 2016. An application will be posted soon.
