Stanford Summer Community College Premedical Program (SSCCPP)
The Stanford Summer Community College Premedical Program (SSCCPP) targets current community college students considered low-income and/or underrepresented in medicine providing exposure to medicine and health through topics in health disparities, leadership challenges in health provision and administration, science success strategies, professional development, clinical exposure, successful preparation for the medical school application process, postsecondary and graduate/professional school financing.
SSCCPP allows talented and motivated community college students interested in medicine to immerse themselves in the Stanford School of Medicine network through a variety of personal and professional development experiences. The 2023 program is expected to be offered as a hybrid program, offering two weeks of virtual learning and four weeks in an on-campus, residential program.
SSCCPP is designed to impact the San Francisco Bay area and its contiguous counties, promoting the growth and diversity of the health workforce in the region.
Participants will be REQUIRED to remain on campus for the duration of the program (Monday – Saturday, 8am – 10pm) and will be immersed in topic areas including:
· Critical reading and research of medical literature
· Health Activism and Advocacy in Medicine
· Science preparatory classes (human anatomy and molecular cellular bio)
· Leadership in Medicine and Medical Science
· The medical school admissions and financing process
Additional activities promote:
· Peer networking
· Medical student mentorship
· Clinical shadowing and research opportunity education

"[This program] has further solidified my career choice. I am pursuing a medical career with more passion and enthusiasm than before. I have also taken leadership roles after the HCOP program - something I never thought I would do as an undergraduate student."
