Northwestern University’s Feinberg School of Medicine, Student National Medical Association (SNMA) student group each year coordinates and hosts HPREP.  HPREP aims to provide an added foundation and experience to those students interested in pursuing a career in the health professions, e.g. physician, nurse, physical therapist, or pharmacist.  Students will be able to see and hear minority health professionals discuss issues at the forefront of medicine, as well as have minority healthcare students interact with them on a regular basis.  HRPEP participants will have opportunities rarely experienced by the average minority undergraduate student.  These opportunities will include:


Immersion in the medical school curriculum

Performing basic medical physicals

Personal statement writing, mock interviews, and MCAT workshops

Observing a gross anatomy lab

Mentoring by healthcare students

Information on different health professions and fields of medicine


Application Requirements

Students with Minimum GPA of 2.0

We are looking specifically for students who come from backgrounds that are statistically underrepresented in the health care profession such as African-Americans, Hispanics, Native Americans and Pacific Islanders.  Nonetheless, all students interested in this program are more than welcome to apply.  This is a very fun program and previous students have really enjoyed it and very informative.   If a student has already participated in the program, they are not eligible to participate another year because the program is not significantly different from year to year.


The dates for HPREP will be: 01/05, 01/12, 01/19, 02/02, 02/09, 02/16 (Note that we will not have HPREP on 01/26)

9:00 AM – 12:00 pm at the Feinberg Campus in Downtown Chicago


All applications must be postmarked by Nov 30th, 2012. We do prefer online applications.
