The 2017 Biomedical Career Advancement Program

The MI-AHEC program collaborated with Dr. Jennell White, Program Director for Biomedical Careers Advancement Program [BCAP], to expand BCAP to include an additional 90 Detroit Public School Community District students. BCAP will be held for 6 weeks this summer starting in June. Selected students will have the opportunity to improve their technical skills in a realistic setting outside of the classroom and work alongside a senior faculty mentor at Wayne State University.  For this expansion, the Detroit Wayne Mental Health Authority (DWMHA) is providing $150,000 in funding as part of their commitment to the City of Detroit's, Grow Detroit Young Talent. DWMHA will offer $1,500 stipends to the students as part of this summer experience.
