Northeast Oregon Area Health Education Center’s application deadline for their high school MedQuest Camp is quickly approaching. There is only a little more than a month left to apply, as student applications must be submitted by March 15th for consideration. Camp will take place from June 18th-22nd on the Eastern Oregon University campus.


All students with a demonstrated interest in healthcare are encouraged to apply. Northeast Oregon AHEC pre-admitted 10 outstanding students who applied by their early acceptance deadline in December, but they still have 25-30 slots left to fill and they will make their final acceptance decisions in March.

They do have scholarship opportunities available for students with a financial need. Students just need to indicate this on their applications to be eligible.

The Summer Health Professions Education Program, is a free summer enrichment program focused on improving access to information and resources for college students interested in the health professions. Application deadline is February 15, 2018. SHPEP’s goal is to strengthen the academic proficiency and career development of students underrepresented in the health professions and prepare them for a successful application and matriculation to health professions schools. These students include, but are not limited to, individuals who identify as African American/Black, American Indian and Alaska Native and Hispanic/Latino, and who are from communities of socioeconomic and educational disadvantage.

The University of Washington is one of the hosts and the free program provides airfare/mileage reimbursement, all meals and participant stipends.
