The University of Delaware College of Health Sciences is training the next generation of healthcare leaders. Are you one of them?


Increasing diversity among health professionals improves access to healthcare for everyone. High school students are invited to apply for a six-day college immersion camp. The experience provides a deep exploration into health science majors and careers in an on-campus, college experience. Students will have the opportunity to engage with university faculty, researchers, graduate students and undergraduate mentors. The camp experience focuses on a variety of health sciences programs including, Nutrition, Health Behavior Science, Biotechnology, Exercise Science, Nursing, Communication Sciences and Disorders, and many more. Our goal is to provide all campers with a fun, safe and rewarding camp experience.

The College of Health Sciences will fund students’ housing (2 students per room in a UD dormitory), meals, school supplies, and mid-week transportation. Students and parents are only responsible for their own transportation to and from Newark at the beginning and end of the week.
