SHPEP Online ClassesSummer Health Professions Education Program (SHPEP), offered through the School of Medicine Office for Diversity and Inclusion, will complete its first-ever virtual summer program Friday (7/10). What was traditionally a six-week, in-person education program, was modified in late March/early April to fit within the University’s limited business model.

This year, over 400 students applied for SHPEP at UAB. Of those, 80 were selected and agreed to participate in this modified four-week session. 

Starting at 2:00 PM CST, program participants from around the world will receive a warm welcome and congratulations from each of the partnering Dean’s. 

Expected to speak is: 

• Dean Vickers – Medicine
• Dean Nichols – Optometry
• Dean Butler – Health Professions
• Dean Taichman – Dentistry

Following their completion in the program, the National Program Office will mail each student a certificate and specialty items.
