UT MD Anderson Cancer Center School of Health Professions Summer Program for High School Seniors

We are gearing up for our Carl B. & Florence E. King Foundation Texas High School Summer Program in Biomedical Sciences, of which recent high school graduates in Texas that will start college in the fall are eligible to apply. 

The School of Health Professions at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center would like to announce that we are accepting applications Dec. 1, 2016 – Jan. 19, 2017 for the Summer Program June 5 – July 21, 2017.

Attached is our informational flyer for potential applicants to the program. For more information visit our web page (http://bit.ly/SHP-HS-Summer) or contact me directly. We are looking for students interested in the allied health professions that could benefit from our 7-week educational experience. Our faculty and staff will provide them with lectures and laboratory activities to showcase our undergraduate programs, to demonstrate to the students how each field relates to the fight to end cancer, and to make the students aware of career opportunities in healthcare.

Students will receive a scholarship to help defray living expenses during the program. Participants living outside a 20-mile radius from our campus will have the choice to stay at a Rice University college (residence hall).

No new applications will be taken after January 19. We hope to choose the students by early April.
