Biomedical Careers Program

The Biomedical Careers Program (BCP) is an intensive four-week academic enrichment summer pathway program for undergraduate students pursuing a career in medicine. BCP offers students at different stages of their undergraduate education the intellectual and self-management skills to succeed on their path to medical school. Students take part in a variety of core science courses, academic support and success seminars, patient-simulated clinical modules, career and professional development workshops along with student wellness activities. BCP targets students from groups underrepresented in medicine and those from educationally and financially disadvantaged backgrounds.
