Summer Health Institute

Barrett Summer Scholars

The Summer Health Institute at ASU’s College of Health Solutions is a unique opportunity for high school student to explore health career options.  Students who have completed their junior year are eligible to stay for a week on the Downtown Phoenix campus, where they will enjoy an immersive college experience while learning about what it means to be a physician, dentist, physical therapist, optometrist, physician assistant, occupational therapist and health care provider. Participants enjoy three hours of daily simulation at Creighton University School of Medicine with activities like suturing, IVs, intubation and injections. Participants will interact with members of the health care team and tour health care facilities located within the health corridor of Arizona. Because of generous support from community partners, the only cost to participants in the Summer Health Institute is travel to and from the camp.

Location: In person at ASU's Downtown Phoenix campus
Ages/grades: Rising seniors who will graduate high school in May or June 2025
Cost: Housing, food, materials and instruction are provided at no cost. Participants will need to travel to and from the camp at their own expense.
