The Research Training and Career Development Program (RTCP) is part of the University of Illinois at Chicago Health Professions Navigator. It is an intensive eight-week (8) summer program for highly motivated undergraduate and graduate students who are interested in exploring potential careers in the health sciences, and to familiarize them with biomedical research and practice opportunities. Participants will be exposed to issues related to health disparities and health equity, and the impact these have on patient care, health promotion, and prevention. They will also engage in a three-day orientation to enhance their professional skills and acclimate them to a research setting. Additionally, program participants will be offered workshops and activities designed to guide them through the admissions process for graduate or professional school. Program participants will receive a stipend, and University housing will be available for those who may need summer housing. Please note that housing fees will be deducted from individual stipends.The Research Training and Career Development Program (RTCP) is a collaboration by the College of Medicine, the School of Public Health, the College of Dentistry, the Center for Clinical Translational Science, and the UIC Bridges to Baccalaureate Program.
