HPREP Summer Camp (formerly MedStars)

What is HPREP? HPREP stands for Healthcare Pre-Professional Exploration Pathway and is a three-day summer program at Oregon Health & Science University (OHSU).

When is HPREP? The schedule is set by OHSU each year for a date in July.

Who could attend HPREP? Current 11th and 12th grade students are eligible to apply.

Students who have demonstrated their interest in a health career by participating in other health career programs. Students from rural and underserved minority communities will be given first priority into the program, based on their letters of recommendation and application. There are about 10 spots for students from each AHEC regional center.

What does HPREP cost?  Once accepted, there is a $50 fee. Scholarships are available to cover that fee, if needed.

What will I do at HPREP?  Students travel to OHSU in Portland to participate in a wide range of activities designed to expand understanding of the health care field and employment possibilities; provide insight into OHSU educations programs, admissions processes and financial aid; and connect students to resources at OHSU, throughout the state, and in their local communities. Students stay on-campus at Portland State University for a college experience.
