Pre-enrollment Support Program: Biomedical Sciences

The Pre-enrollment Support Program in biomedical sciences helps students make the challenging transition between their undergraduate and graduate degree programs in biomedical sciences or medical school.

This six-week program pre-exposes students to crucial aspects of the health or medical sciences curriculum, including, but not limited to, human gross anatomy, biochemistry, human physiology, neuroanatomical science and other health-related curricula. Students must be a rising junior or senior and enrolled in a four-year higher education.


To participate in PESP, you must be:

  • a first-generation college student
  • financially disadvantaged, based on federal guidelines
  • a U.S. citizen or legal resident
