Clinical If you are looking for a specific clinical trial in a particular city (Ann Arbor, Los Angeles, Sydney) or on a particular topic (ALS, Asthma, Breast Cancer) you can use the search engine to find clinical trials.

Summer Health Professions Education Program According to SHPEP,  they offer a "free summer enrichment program focused on improving access to information and resources for college students interested 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. These students include, but are not limited to, individuals who identify as African American/Black, American Indian and Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino, and who are from communities of socioeconomic and educational disadvantage. SHPEP, formerly known as the Summer Medical and Dental Education Program (SMDEP), expanded in 2016 to include a broader array of health professions."  This is a very competitive but amazing program. There are 13 sites including but not limited to Columbia, Howard, LSU, Rutgers, Univ. of Alabama, Univ., of Florida,  Univ. of Washington and more. The application has been open since December 1 and closes on February 1, 2018 so get going on this application.
