What is YSEP?
Youth Science Enrichment Program “YSEP" is an outreach program designed to provide fourth and fifth grade students with the opportunity to interact with medical students, faculty and health professionals. YSEP is sponsored by the UNC-CH Chapter of Student National Medical Association (SNMA)
Who are YSEP students?
Elementary school students from across the Triangle and central NC area who are motivated and interested in medicine, allied health careers or science. YSEP is designed for members of minority ethnic groups, although others are welcome to apply.
What exactly happens at YSEP?
Students meet at Bondurant Hall located on the campus of UNC School of Medicine for six Saturdays, October 10, 2015 - November 21, 2015 from 9.00 AM - 1:00 PM. For the first 5 weeks there is about an hour of fun, interactive teaching of human body organ systems and diseases, gross anatomy labs (have you ever held a real human heart in your hands?!) and a discussion on the topic of the day. The last two weeks of the program are dedicated to health care discussions and student presentations*.
YSEP Co-Coordinators: Amalia Lee, Daryl Cunningham and Spencer Carpenter-Carter.
