Summer Institute (SI)
American Indian students in grades 7-12 are encouraged to participate in the INMED Summer Institute Program (SI), a six-week academic enrichment session for students who are interested in exploring careers and fields of study in health care. SI provides students an opportunity to enhance their potential for success in a health career through daily classes in biology, chemistry, communications/study skills, health with basic first aid, math and physics. These courses are vital for a successful health career.
In addition to the coursework, SI participants are given the opportunity to experience life on a college campus, listen to successful American Indian health professionals, learn more about various health careers, participate in educational field trips, and meet other American Indian students from across the United States.
Sixty students are selected each year to participate in SI. Supervision is provided on a 24-hour-a-day basis for the entire six-week period. All educational expenses (i.e., room and board, transportation) are paid by the program with funds from our Indian Health Service grant.
