The Biomedical Science Careers Program (BSCP) is asking for your help in identifying underrepresented minority postdocs (research and clinical); medical, dental and graduate students; post-baccalaureates; college and community college students; and high school seniors and juniors (particularly African-American, Hispanic/Latino or American Indian/Alaska Native students) who would benefit the most from attending the conference.  Student participants should be seriously interested in or currently studying medicine, biomedical science or other science-related fields, such as chemistry, physics, biology, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, engineering, biotechnology, physical therapy, public health, allied health or environmental science.


The aim of the Conference is to provide students/fellows with an opportunity to network with advisors/role models from the basic and clinical sciences, medicine, public health, academia and the biopharmaceutical industry.  These advisors/role models will encourage students/fellows to complete advanced studies and provide concrete advice and information on available resources, professional opportunities and career paths in biomedical science and other science-related fields.  The Conference also enables student/fellow participants to meet, inspire and network with one another.  Additionally, each Conference offers breakout and plenary sessions, and a program featuring science resources, including internships, summer programs and after-school activities.  Please see attached flyer for more information.


There is no fee to attend, but completion of a four-page application is required.


Application Deadline: February 4, 2020.


Please share the attached flyer with eligible students.

Interested students should contact Hollie DeSilva at to request an application.
