Applications for the 2021 program will be accepted until March 29. Please contact the Director at firstname.lastname@example.org for instructions.
The 2021 UPHCSA program will be four weeks of virtual classes (June 28 - July 23). We also plan to offer a one-week day program on campus the week of July 26 - 31. Students must participate in the virtual classes in order to attend the day program.
Tuition for the virtual program will be $1375. There will be a separate fee for the day program (TBD).
Please note: due to the virtual format, some modifications to the curriculum will be necessary (for example, there will not be any shadowing opportunities).
