 Application portal now open through Feb 1! 

The University of Minnesota Summer College of Pharmacy Experience (SCoPE) Program aims to provide pharmaceutical career exploration opportunities and adequate technical and professional skills enhancement opportunities to prepare scholars for post-baccalaureate PhD and PharmD program entry.

During the 8–10 week SCoPE program, participants will be paired with a faculty advisor who will oversee a research-intensive project and aid in the preparation of an Individual Development Plan. The full-time positions will allow participants to experience what it is like to be a graduate or professional student in the University of Minnesota College of Pharmacy. Additional time each week will be devoted to:

  • professional development (including PCAT/GRE preparation)
  • cohort meetings (topics include intro to collaborative research, work/life balance, cultural competence, and more)
  • career and technical seminars
  • preparation for applying to PhD or PharmD programs.

SCoPE scholars will participate in an end-of-program poster symposium to present the highlights of their summer work. We strongly encourage members of underrepresented minority (URM) groups, first generation college students, and those facing physical, socioeconomic, or social challenges to pharmaceutical science career paths to apply for our summer program.

SCoPE Program dates: June 1 – August 27, 2021
