On December 14, 2013, Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons held a Bring Your Parent to Class Day, Financial Aid Workshop and Holiday Party for the State Pre-College Enrichment Program (S-PREP) students and parents.
S-PREP students also joined the H.E.A.L.T.H. for Youths‘ City Harvest Food Drive, during which program participants donated over 100 lbs. of food and other items.
AMSNY’s Science and Technology Entry Programs (STEP) is a consortium of ten rigorous academic enrichment programs across the State, including S-PREP at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. S-PREP is an educational and motivational program for academically talented minority and economically disadvantaged high school students who endeavor to enter the field of medicine, science or related health professions. The program’s aim is to be a pipeline that will assist with increasing the number of minority physicians, scientists and other health professionals. S-PREP is one of the 60 STEP programs in New York State.
