Health Sciences LEAP Program
Diverse Freshman Students
Health Sciences LEAP is a program addressing the growing need for minority applicants to Health Sciences programs. In conjunction with undergraduate studies, this program assists diverse students entering as freshmen who have an interest in pharmacy, nursing, medicine, or health. The Health Sciences LEAP Programs support students through academic and personal advising, and offer program activities where they can meet other diverse students interested in Health Sciences.
Completely revamped, rather than applying to a competitive program during ones senior year of high school, now incoming freshmen non-competitively enroll in and complete the introductory course, “Health Professions for Minority, Underrepresented, and First-generation Students,” in their fall and spring semester.
Competitive application and selection will take place during the spring semester before beginning your sophomore year and with the intention of successful completion of the above-referenced course.
