Registration Open for Health Science Camp


 UPDATE:The deadline for application has been extended through March 19. Apply here. 

 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.”

The deadline for application is Mar. 2! Apply here.
