About The Office of Student Professional Enrichment

The Office of Student Professional Enrichment was established in 2005 with an eye towards training a new generation of health care leaders. To enrich students’ experiences beyond the classroom, the OSPE offers professional development, advising, programs, and resources. The Scholarly Concentration, one of the OSPE’s signature programs, offers nine concentrations of study designed to enhance what students are learning in the medical curriculum. In support of exceptional opportunities, including, research-related summer internships and international electives, the OSPE administers a variety of scholarship programs. Whether learning from lawmakers on Capitol Hill about health policy, conducting research at NIH, serving in local community health organizations, or gaining a global perspective on fighting disease, our students are able to take advantage of an array of exciting and challenging opportunities offered through the OSPE.
