Einstein Pipeline Programs

The Albert Einstein College of Medicine supports the following pipeline programs:

  • The Bronx Science Health Opportunities Partnership (BxSHOP) is a federally funded program providing a comprehensive health career educational pathway. BxSHOP formally links the Albert Einstein College of Medicine to programs in our community dedicated to the development and nurturing of students from middle school through post-baccalaureate programs. Currently our collaboration consists of 11 partners that share resources, facilities and faculty. 
  • The Einstein Enrichment Program (EEP) is the high school pipeline program of the Office of Diversity Enhancement. EEP participates in the New York state funded Science & Technology Entry Program (STEP) through a consortium of nine medical colleges of the Associated Medical Schools of New York (AMSNY).  
  • The Diversity Student Summer Research Opportunity Program (DSSORP) is designed to provide educational opportunities for college sophomores and juniors who have a strong interest in a research career in biomedical and/ or medicine. The program provides eight weeks of experience and participation in biomedical research. Students conduct research under the direction of a faculty member. Research assignments will be made based upon availability of research opportunities and according to the mutual interests of the faculty sponsors and student participants. In keeping with Albert Einstein College of Medicine’s overall commitment to diversity, we strongly encourage applications from those groups historically underrepresented in medicine to apply. 
  • Summer Undergraduate Mentorship Program (SUMP) offers college students six weeks of summer programming where they spend time observing a physician, learning about health disparities and cultural competency, and preparing for the MCAT exams.
