Gap Year Experience to Prepare for Graduate Studies for Students from Underrepresented Groups in STEM

This one year-long program also provides comprehensive professional development experiences and workshops to strengthen the professional skills necessary to apply and succeed in research and graduate school. Overall, this experience is designed to prepare individuals for admission into a biomedical sciences PhD program.

This program seeks graduates who demonstrate a high level of interest/engagement in biomedical research but are not ready to apply to graduate school.
