Summer Medical Dental Education Program (SMDEP)

Dear Adviser and Prospective Student:

Each summer, the UW School of Medicine’s Center for Equity, Diversity and Inclusion & UW School of Dentistry Educational Partnerships and Diversity offers an unique opportunity for college freshman and sophomore students interested in medicine and dentistry.

The Summer Medical Dental Education Program (SMDEP) is a six-week enrichment program for talented underrepresented college freshmen and sophomores interested in medicine or dentistry. The program will offer each scholar intensive enrichment in core science courses, clinical exposure, mentor shadowing and much more. The UW simultaneously aims to provide its participants with a deeper understanding of the needs of underserved communities within a supportive and diverse environment. The UW SMDEP has a 23 year proven record of success among our graduates. As of 2011, 870 of our SMDEP graduates have gone on to medical school or dental school.

It is intended for students who are from disadvantaged backgrounds (economic, geographic, education) and/or students who are underrepresented in medicine (racial and ethnic populations that are underrepresented in the medical profession relative to their numbers in the general population). We feel that students who expect to encounter significant barriers in achieving their educational and professional goals will benefit from SMDEP.

The UW SMDEP information/application is online at www.smdep.org. SMDEP application opens November 1st. The application deadline is March 1st. SMDEP has rolling admissions: SMDEP accepts students on an ongoing basis, so please apply early. View SMDEP video at . Please see enclosures regarding promotional materials on SMDEP.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact Pam Racansky at racansky or Dan Olson at dolson . Thank you for your consideration.
