You’re Officially a SHPEP Alumni, What’s Next?
So, you are finished with SHPEP and now you are wondering, “What’s next?”. Read Felix Contreras, SHPEP National Alumni Advisory Board Member’s advice on the different avenues post-SHPEP.
Mr. Contreras breaks it down into 3 different categories: undergraduates, graduates in their gap year, and applying to graduate school. Read more>
After completing SHPEP there are many ways to stay connected to students who attended your site. While each site has different ways to keep alumni connected after completion of the program, you may not have the opportunity
to connect with alumni from other program sites. With the recent expansion to include more healthcare specialties, the SHPEP program sites have changed. One of the best ways of keeping in contact with alumni members from your program site is to connect on LinkedIn.
By joining the SHPEP Alumni LinkedIn group, you can keep in contact with program alum, network, and hear about alumni engagement opportunities and events. Connecting with SHPEP on LinkedIn will allow you to connect with alumni from all the different sites since the program started. This provides many networking opportunities with those who have completed professional school, who are currently in school and those who have just completed SHPEP. There may be program alumni in your area that you may not even know about. Finding a mentor or someone to talk to about academic and career goals can be hard but connecting with someone in the SHPEP Alumni LinkedIn group can it easier. Connecting on LinkedIn also makes it easier to stay up to date on future program alumni events and reunions.
Congratulations to the First Cohort of Rubens Pamies Scholarship Winners
Four winning applications were chosen from over two hundred submissions. The Pamies Scholarship was started by program alumni who wanted to provide financial assistance to fellow alumni while simultaneously honoring the memory of Dr. Pamies—a man who dedicated his life to improving the health of underserved populations and increasing the number of underrepresented minorities entering medicine.
Jonathan’s story stood out for his demonstrated commitment to the ideals espoused by Dr. Pamies.
