The application for VCU Summer Academic Enrichment Program 2015 is now available online at www.dhsd.vcu.edu!

The Summer Academic Enrichment Program is an intensive, six-week interprofessional academic enrichment program designed to enhance the academic preparation of junior and senior undergraduate students, as well as post-baccalaureate students, who are actively pursuing enrollment in a health professions school.

Students may choose a concentration from among four disciplines: dentistry, medicine, pharmacy and physical therapy.

The curriculum is designed around an interprofessional framework that provides:

  • Three core courses
  • Discipline-specific instruction time
  • Learning skills and test-taking workshops
  • Seminars featuring topics on health disparities
  • Professionalism
  • Group and individual counseling
  • Social and networking events
Participants are provided housing and a stipend to cover program expenses.

we are paid to do this program? and provided housing?
Are these like post-bach classes or are they more like preparation class so you can get prepared for admissions process?

Hi 2THDDS,

To answer your questions, yes, you are paid and provided housing during this program. Students take three core courses taught at a professional level by professors who work on the medical campus. These classes will help give you an idea of the rigor during the first year of dental school.
