Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP)

About Us

Program Overview:

The WesternU Summer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP), sponsored by the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, offers an innovative approach to academic enrichment in the basic sciences  through team-based learning.  WesternU SHPEP is a rigorously inter-professional program offered in a diverse and vibrant urban environment. Student learning of foundational science, inter-professional teamwork, heath disparities and healthcare policy will be driven by weekly clinical cases. Hands-on training in clinical skills is provided in a wide range of health professions through the WesternU Colleges of Dentistry, Osteopathic Medicine, Allied Health, Graduate Nursing, Pharmacy, Podiatric Medicine, Optometry and Graduate Biomedical Sciences. Student accommodations and dining are provided at our host-housing college (TBD).
