The University of Illinois at Chicago Health Professions Navigator Program (UIC-HPN) is now accepting applications for two summer programs:
1) The Research Training and Career Development Program (RTCP), a program intended for highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students from disadvantaged backgrounds. RTCP will help familiarize students with research and practice opportunities by pairing them with a mentor, or placing them in a practice site.
If you are an undergraduate or graduate student (from any college or university), and have an interest in pursuing a career within the health professions, you are eligible to apply! RTCP is 8 weeks long and concludes with an end of program poster presentation that family and friends are welcome to attend to learn more about your summer work! For more details on the RTCP, eligibility, program dates, or to apply, please click the link below or view the attached flyer.
2) GRE/MCAT/DAT Prep Program (GMDP): GMDP is designed to prepare students from disadvantaged backgrounds to be competitive applicants for graduate or professional school. In addition to a test preparation course for the GRE, MCAT, or DAT exams, participants will engage in a series of workshops that are designed to help them through the admissions process for graduate or professional school. Juniors and seniors in college (from any college or university) – or even recent grads – who are interested in a health professions career are eligible to apply! GMDP is free of charge for accepted participants.

Please note that this is not a residential program. If accepted into the program, you will be responsible for your own housing.
