Academic Level:
High School Students

Description:
Junior and senior high/bridge students are encouraged to participate in the INMED Summer Institute Program, which is a six week academic enrichment session for students currently enrolled in grades seven through twelve. SI provides students an opportunity to enhance their potential for success in a health career through daily classes in biology, chemistry, communications/study skills, health with basic first aid, math and physics. These courses are vital for a successful health career.

In addition to the coursework, Summer Institute participants are given the opportunity to experience life on a college campus, listen to successful American Indian health professionals, learn more about various health careers, participate in educational field trips; attend a powwow, and meet other American Indian students from across the United States.

Ninety students are selected each year to participate in SI. Supervision is provided on a twenty-four hour a day basis for the entire six-week period. All educational expenses, i.e., room and board transportation, are paid by the program with funds from our Indian Health Service and INBRE.
