H-PREP High School Application 2018
We invite you to apply to the Health Professions Recruitment Exposure Program (HPREP) at SUNY Downstate Medical Center. HPREP is a program for highly motivated minority high school students in the 9th through 11th grade who are interested in the sciences and medical field. Our organizational goal is to provide guidance and leadership to our health professional student community as well as the community at large.
HPREP consists of seven 3-hour seminars, once a week on Saturday mornings at 10:00 AM, starting in early October into mid November. During this time, students will participate in anatomy dissections, a group research project, and a college preparatory workshop. Through involvement in group activities and discussions, participating students will further develop the academic skills that will prepare them for college and better qualify them to study health-related disciplines. Our students will work in groups to research one medically related topic and give a final presentation at the end of the program.
We ask that our students not miss more than one session to avoid being dismissed from the program. Lunch will be provided at each session.
To apply, please fill out the application below, and send the following documents to the Downstate H-PREP email listed in the application:
1. Copy of high school transcript
2. Parental Consent Form
3. Department of Education Consent Form
4. Downstate Photo Release Form
5. Application Essay
All items MUST BE RECEIVED by MONDAY September 24th, 2018. Admissions will be on a rolling basis. Please submit all application materials together. Unfortunately, due to the limited spots in the program, late applications cannot be considered. All applications must be completed online or emailed to
