Registration is now open for Hardin-Simmons’ Health Sciences Summer Enrichment Program (HSSEP).
This two-week medical camp offers an opportunity for students who are
interested in the health sciences to strengthen their skills in science and
mathematics in a college environment.
The program aims to
build confidence in student’s ability to master science skills at the college
level and to expose students to a variety of healthcare career options. HSSEP
consists of a combination of college lectures, engaging labs, and interactive
sessions with health care professionals and their workplaces.
Lecture and lab
classes in biology, chemistry and college algebra or pre-calculus will be
offered. These classes are designed to prepare students for success on further
pre-health admissions tests. Students will be introduced to a range of health
careers through sessions with professionals and with current pre-health
graduate students. Upon completion, students will receive quantitative feedback
on their strengths and weaknesses.
To attend, students
must be an incoming 11th or 12th grader or college
freshman with a GPA of 3.0 or higher. They must be interested in pursuing
health-related careers and be considering HSU for college education.
Ruth Mitchell, a
junior at Pecos High School, attended the program last summer.
“HSSEP was such an
amazing experience, she said. “I was able to get personal teaching from
exciting professors and participate in labs and experiments that helped provide
connections with what I learned in the class. I was exposed to several
different fields in health science and saw facilities that blew me away, such
as the cadaver lab.”
