BRIDGE Program in Biomedical Science
The BRIDGE Program application for summer 2017 is now available. To go to the 2017 application, click here.
The BRIDGE Program in Biomedical Sciences is a summer opportunity for rising high school seniors (students between their junior & senior year). Our mission is to provide an enriching educational experience that allows for personal development, as well as academically prepares you to enter college in the biomedical sciences and beyond. As a Bridge student you will meet with our Admissions counselors and with our Career and Leadership Development Office, allowing you to see the pathway to academic success and career goal options. Additionally, you will see and experience research on campus and learn how to get involved, should you become a Sewanee student (please see Research Bridge). We also will explore surrounding cities and experience this beautiful region.
This program aims to bring together students from all over the country and beyond. From Colombia to California, last year students came from all over to experience the Sewanee BRIDGE Program. The highlight for many students was being with a diverse group of people to learn not only the great academics we have to offer but from each other. We are looking for students whose experiences would contribute to and enrich the diversity of our academic community and who are interested in studying biomedical sciences, such as molecular biology, neuroscience, animal behavior, and anatomy. This program will additionally focus on foundational disciplines, like mathematics, which are essential underpinnings in the biomedical field, with courses in calculus and statistics. Outside of class time and seminars, you will experience life on the Domain in Sewanee.
Program Dates: June 11 - July 1, 2017
Sewanee’s facilities include state-of-the-art equipment, computerized classrooms, and a 13,000-acre campus that provides ample opportunity for research and recreation. This is a 3-week residential pre-college program. For questions please write to the Director of the Bridge Program, Alyssa Summers, PhD, or call 931-598-1856 (office)
