Program Information

Location: University of Washington, Seattle, WA


Start/End Dates: TBD

Academic Credit: No


The UW SHPEP will emphasize a culture of health by encouraging scholars to consider from the cellular to the global level factors that influence health. In addition, scholars will be encouraged to explore what their unique role will be in improving the health of communities with curricula exploring self-identity, culture and personal strengths in a context presenting a range of health professions. Rigorous academic course work will include population health, life sciences, and biostatistics and will utilize lectures, active learning, discussions, peer mentoring and self-reflection.

Clinical Experience: Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the University of Washington is not able to offer clinical experiences.


Meals: Students will receive a meal subsidy.

Stipend: $600 distributed in two installments during week 1 and week 3 of the program.



Social Activities: As a virtual program, there will be no on-campus or in-person experiences. Community-building is an important part of SHPEP, and our teaching assistants will work with this summer’s participants to develop online activities that help everyone build their community and to network with one another.
