Rehab Academic and Mentorship Program

The UCI Health Rehab Academic and Mentorship Program (RAMP) is a two-week intensive program for undergraduate college students interested in a career in rehabilitation services — physical therapy, occupational therapy and speech therapy.

This program aims to provide an enriching experience for students who will shadow therapists in various settings, participate in lectures on important rehabilitation topics and receive guidance in preparing graduate school applications.

RAMP will give students a deeper understanding of therapy and its role in healthcare, as well as help them build connections at a world-class academic medical center. Applications for 2024 are to be determined. Applications received outside of the application window will not be reviewed or accepted.
