The Michigan Health Sciences Pre-College Exposure Academy (MHSPEA) is a two-week entry level residential academic enrichment program sponsored by the University of Michigan Medical School (UMMS) Office for Health Equity & Inclusion (OHEI).
The MHSPEA brings together highly motivated rising 10th and 11th grade high school students to gain exposure to the University Michigan and UMMS. Participants will take college prep courses taught by experts in the field such as: English, Chemistry, Biology, and Math which are essential courses for a successful track to health professions. Other courses participants will take include: Introduction to College and ACT preparation.
The MHSPEA features workshops on health disparities, health equity, introduction to research, and academic wellness. In addition, students will take tours of the UMMS, UM Hospital and UM Central Campus. During the two-week session, student leaders stay in the residence hall with participants and provide one-on-one and small group mentoring, academic coaching, and intellectual and social stimulation. Michigan Health Sciences Pre-College Exposure Academy participants will be exposed to fun-filled evening events highlighting cultural diversity, self-development, and the arts.
