Teenagers get a taste of medical school in UC Irvine’s Summer Premed Program.

The UC Irvine School of Medicine is proud to offer a menu of summer enrichment programs aimed at motivating talented high school students to pursue careers in healthcare and research.

In addition to fostering the interest of youth in healthcare and science innovation, the programs empower medical students and pre-professional students who are accepted as program coaches to become lifelong teachers and leaders. Our programs have grown from 30 high school students in 2010 to more than 150 in 2012.

The application is competitive and scholarships are provided to 25 percent of students from underserved backgrounds.
