Other Summer Research Opportunities

Over the past eighteen years, the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine (CWRU) has conducted a six-week summer enrollment program designed to assist highly motivated and capable minority students in preparing for a career in medicine and in dentistry. Our Summer Medical Dental Education Program (SMDEP) is designed to enrich students who are completing their freshman or sophomore year of college and are considering professional careers in medicine and dentistry. SMDEP targets those from communities that are historically underrepresented in medicine and dentistry: African Americans, Latinos, Native Americans, and those who are economically disadvantaged. All are welcome to apply.
