The Health Professions Recruitment and Exposure Program (HPREP) is an enrichment program for 10th and 11th graders at the Weill Cornell Medical College on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. It is a national program addressing the issues of declining enrollment rates of underrepresented minorities, specifically in medicine and generally in the health professions. HPREP exposes high school sophomores and juniors to science-related activities and teaches students about the steps needed to become a physician or other health care provider.

The program consists of ten (10) two and a half hour sessions held on Friday afternoons during the months of January, February, and March. Students will attend lectures given by physicians at The Joan and Sanford I. Weill Cornell Medical College. They will also participate in small group workshops led by Weill Cornell medical students. All participants will be required to submit a research paper on an approved topic of interest in medicine at the conclusion of the program. At the end of the program, two participants will receive a College Book Scholarship, to be used during their first year of college enrollment.
