Undergraduate Pre-Health Program
The University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus – Office of Inclusion and Outreach and Kaiser Permanente Colorado partner to provide summer internships for undergraduate students interested in pursuing careers related to healthcare. Both organizations are committed to helping increase the number of historically underrepresented individuals within healthcare professions for the purpose of reducing health disparities among underserved communities in Colorado.
By participating in the program students will learn about health disparities, diseases that are impacting their community and the prevention and treatment options for the diseases. The courses are taught by distinguished University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus faculty, staff, and students and will consist of lectures, demonstrations and professional development. The program is designed to expose students to the many facets of health care.
The program will start in April with a program orientation. Then the participants will participate in an 10-12 week summer program.

of Colorado’s Area Health Education Centers (AHEC) Program Office, in
collaboration with the STAR Library
Education Network (STAR_Net), and CLACE present Discover Health/Descubre la Salud, a project funded by the National Institutes of
Health Science Education Partnership Award. This traveling exhibition
addresses the nation’s most serious public health issues, especially among
underserved and rural populations (diabetes, obesity, and cardiovascular
health). It also encourages youth, especially those from at-risk communities to
pursue careers in health care professions. The project engages students,
families, and adults by using a strategic combination of interactive exhibits
and activities in both English and Spanish presented at public libraries,
community health festivals, and career events.
