The Biomedical Careers Program (BCP) began in 1978 to serve undergraduate students by offering an intensive six-week summer academic enrichment program in the sciences and health care-oriented activities. The program is sponsored by Rutgers- Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Rutgers University (New Brunswick campus), and the New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund. Designed to increase the academic preparedness and facilitate the entry of students into medical or other health professional schools, BCP offers an academic program with three levels and six different curricula designed for students at various stages of their undergraduate education. The academic component consists of science courses, relevant laboratory, research, and clinical experiences, cognitive skills seminars, and MCAT preparation for medical school admissions. The support component consists of career counseling and seminar series which include the following topics: applying to / interviewing at health professional schools, financial aid, cultural competency, professionalism, healthy living, stress management, and legal, civic, and social responsibility. The program also includes a recruitment fair and panel discussions with students and health professionals.
