What does an ambassador do?
SHPEP Ambassadors are expected to recruit eligible applicants using promotional materials provided by the National Program Office by:
- Hosting or participating in campus outreach activities
- Sharing program information with pre-health advisors and other influential college/university staff.
- Sharing your experience as a program participant with students
Being an SHPEP Ambassador offers valuable resume building experiences and professional development opportunities such as public speaking and networking. All ambassadors who successfully meet the expectations of the program will receive a certificate of service and a letter of reference from the National Program Office.
The top three ambassadors who recruit the most students for the application year will be given a financial award to offset the costs related to a health professions conference, preparation courses for graduate exams or other school-related expenses.
We value our alumni and hope that you will join us an SHPEP Ambassador!
