High School Summer Program - Summer Science Programs Join our program for graduating high school seniors interested in health professions. The Carl B. & Florence E. King Foundation sponsors a High School Summer Program in Biomedical Sciences at the School of Health Professions. This seven-week exploratory program is for college-bound students that have recently graduated from a Texas high school. For seven weeks, participants will interact with School of Health Professions faculty five days a week, from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in state-of-the art School of Health Professions facilities, located within The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center. The program offers hands-on experiences in college-level molecular, cellular, and microbiological laboratory techniques, as well as in-depth workshops in Medical Dosimetry, Radiation Therapy and Diagnostic Imaging Throughout the program, participants will become aware of the variety of professional and graduate academic career paths associated with the nine Bachelor of Science programs in the School of Health Professions. Participants will have the opportunity to tour MD Anderson and other Texas Medical Center facilities. Also, participants are welcome to attend the MD Anderson Summer Experience College Program Lecture Series. At the conclusion of the program, participants will share their experiences during a celebration luncheon.л_ л_Participants will approach their upcoming college term with an increased awareness and confidence in health professions career fields. To qualify for the program, students must have completed their senior year at a Texas high school prior to the start of the program. This is a competitive program and a review committee will evaluate each application for a demonstration of scientific aptitude, a record of academic achievement, and an interest in pursuing an undergraduate or graduate career in a professional health care field. Participants in the program will receive a stipend for the seven-week period. This stipend is not a salary and is meant solely to subsidize cost of living expenses for students so that they may participate in the program. The stipend is considered income and subject to all applicable taxes and fees. For participants whose permanent residence is more than a 20-mile distance from the School of Health Professions (The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, 1515 Holcombe Blvd., Houston, TX 77030), the Summer Program will consider providing dormitory housing at nearby Rice University.
