Application Criteria

HPREP at Downstate aims to support high school students who are passionate about science and medicine, and desire to one day serve as healthcare professionals. We particularly seek students who belong to underrepresented and underserved groups and acknowledge that greater efforts need to be made to increase the matriculation of minorities into health professional programs. We hope to gather a group of dynamic students who are dedicated to learning in spite of challenges in academics or personal experience. Hence, we employ holistic admission where all aspects of your application are taken into consideration.
