Health Profession Recruitment/Exposure Program (HPREP)

Health Profession Recruitment/Exposure Program (HPREP) is a nine-week program held from January to March. New York City high school students in the 10th and 11th grades, from underrepresented minorities in medicine, are given the opportunity to meet and learn from physicians and other health professionals at Weill Cornell Medicine. HPREP students are paired with a medical student mentor who offers guidance and helps them write a college essay, resume, and research paper. Students participate in various workshops discussing financial aid and the college application process, different fields of medicine, and problem-based learning.

The HPREP 2024 application cycle is closed. Please revisit our website in Fall 2024 for application information on HPREP 2025.

Peer2Peer Mentorship Program

Peer2Peer strives to improve early exposure and resource access for FLI pre-medical students with focus on tiered mentorship and education from the 1st year of college. Recognizing the resource and longitudinal mentorship disparities that exist for FLI pre-meds, Peer2Peer pairs a Cornell medical student with a Hunter College FLI mentee to help mentor them on their premed journey. In brief, expectations include individually meeting with mentees every month with optional attendance at monthly large group sessions, which are organized by Peer2Peer board members.

Science and Medicine Enhancement Program (SMEP)

The Science and Medicine Enhancement Program (SMEP) provides middle school students from Brooklyn, NY with hands-on opportunities to learn about health and disease through a multi-subject approach. In a series of sessions, groups of students led by medical students work on hands-on group and individual activities designed to reinforce basic concepts in basic biology, physiology, pathophysiology related to the diseases and health conditions that most affect the students' communities. During the program, students also engage with the material through reading, research, presentations, and clinical skill sessions.
