Summer Health Professions Education Program (College Students)
Since 2017, Sullivan University College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences has served as a partner for the Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) at the University of Louisville Health Sciences Center. Funded by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, SHPEP is a free, 6-week residential program for first- and second-year college students interested in exploring a career 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.  Ultimately, the program helps to ensure a diverse workforce and equitable access to health care for all communities.  

The Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP) at the University of Louisville, introduces prospective medical, dental, nursing, and pharmacy scholars to the academic rigors of health professions education. Scholars will use team-based learning to integrate and apply the basic and social sciences centered on two major themes: Diabetes and Cardiovascular Disease. Scholars will work in inter-professional collaborative teams to develop and implement treatment plans with dental/medical/nursing/pharmacy applications. Major program emphasis focuses on personal and professional development, including study strategies, career planning, and clinical exposure to the health professions. Concepts of health policy and equity will be interwoven throughout the academic core with experiential health policy components. Scholars will leave the program with a clear understanding of the admissions process, a better understanding of health policy and a new level of enthusiasm and motivation to do well in the upper-level science courses, and in doing so increasing their chances of obtaining their goal of becoming a health care professional. 

Applications are open November 1 – February 5 at  

For specific questions about the SHPEP pre-pharmacy track, please contact Dr. Katie Leslie, Co-Principal Investigator for the University of Louisville SHPEP.
