King/Drew Biomedical Science Education Partnership

The King/Drew Biomedical Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) Program is a three -year intensive and comprehensive biomedical science education program for the same 100 students attending the King/Drew Medical Magnet High School who will participate in the program from grade 10 to 12. Implementation of the SEPA program is through a coalition of partners: King/Drew Medical Magnet High School of Medicine and Science, Charles R. Drew University of Medicine and Science, California State University, Los Angeles' Council of Health Related Programs, and the University of Southern California's School of Medical Education, MED-COR Program. The goal of the SEPA program are to provide extensive educational opportunities, experiences and support for the program's students so that they will be encouraged to enroll in science courses beyond the school district's minimum requirements; and be retained successfully in secondary level science courses rendering them eligible for post-secondary science majors leading to careers in science, engineering and technology.

This project is supported by grant R25 RR13293, from the Science Education Partnership Award (SEPA) Program, National Center for Research Resources and the National Institute of Dental Research, National Institutes of Health, DHHS.
