Prematriculation Summer Program (PSP)

The Prematriculation Summer Program (PSP) is a three-week, on-campus program for select students to experience and preview the medical school format and content in a no-stakes environment.  Participating students attend lectures, labs and small group experiences taught by rising second year students. Content is structured in two blocks with a culminating exam and review session for each block.  Students learn about effective study techniques and resources from current students, faculty, and staff. Student teachers and faculty provide participating students with mentorship and support throughout the program.  Students create connections with their fellow participants, their teachers, and faculty mentors not only through shared academic experiences, but also through social activities planned throughout the program.
