Summer Enrichment Program

The University of Michigan Summer Enrichment Program in Health Management and Policy (UM SEP) is an internship program that attracts and educates future leaders who are committed to eliminating racial, ethnic, and socioeconomic health inequalities.

Each summer, 18-25 undergraduate students from across the country come to Ann Arbor for eight weeks of education, mentoring, internships with health care organizations in Southeast Michigan, and preparation for graduate school success.

Since the program's inception in 1986, more than 90% of its participants have completed graduate study in public health, medicine, health sciences, and business. Most alumni have gone on to successful careers in public health and healthcare management, with many holding senior management positions in health systems, hospitals, community health centers, health policy organizations, and numerous other health enterprises.
