The 2019 Duke University Summer Biomedical Sciences Institute will not take place this year.  Due to construction and renovation projects undertaken to improve the residential experience at Duke, we are unable to have housing that supports the transportation and dining logistics of our curriculum and co-curricular program.

We regret this late notice and hope that you will consider applying for the 2020 Summer Biomedical Sciences Institute.  The application will open on November 2, 2019.

We wish you the best for your summer opportunities and the coming academic year.  Please let us know if you have questions.

The Duke University Summer Biomedical Sciences Institute (SBSI) is a free, six-week summer residential experience for rising sophomore and rising junior premedical college students.  Recognizing that the academic record is the largest barrier to matriculation to medical school, our program takes a two-pronged approach to preparing students to apply and matriculate to medical school.  First, academic content prepares participants for success in the prehealth sciences.  And second, advisement provides a plan for success throughout the undergraduate years.  The Institute targets students who are underrepresented in the health professions (African American, Hispanic/LatinX, Native American, and Alaska Native), or who are disadvantaged, or who desire to work in underserved communities.

The 2020 program dates are June 6 – July 18, 2020.

The application opens November 2, 2019.

The deadline to apply is March 1, 2020.
