Pipeline Programs

In addition to the Health Care Summer Institute (HCSI) and the Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP: Medicine Track) , the College of Medicine offers other pipeline programs that are research focused.

The Summer Neuroscience Internship Program (SNIP) aims to support college students from diverse backgrounds who seek to pursue doctoral (Ph.D.) training in neuroscience and prepare for rewarding careers in biomedical research, education and enterprise.

The ASPET Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship (SURF) at University of Florida is designed to give students a research experience that focuses on Pharmacology & Therapeutics and includes both drug discovery and biological therapies. It is an immersive, 10-week program with mentored independent research, course work, and enrichment activities.

Summer Health Professions Education Program

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.

ECB Mentoring Program

The ECB Mentoring Program is designed to provide our disadvantaged students with faculty mentorship. Interested students are paired with interested mentors. It is a great opportunity for the fostering of relationships between faculty and students and for providing students with addition support during their medical school training.
