The SLU Area Health Education Center Program Office was established in September, 2001. The primary goal of the office is to enhance access to quality healthcare through community-academic educational partnerships focusing on the healthcare needs of the underserved St. Louis area. The program office works in conjunction with the Missouri AHEC Network (MAHEC), which consists of 7 regional centers and 3 program offices. The SLU AHEC Program Office works directly with the East Central Missouri Area Health Education Center (ECMO AHEC) providing services in the St. Louis Region and within SLU health professions programs.
The SLU AHEC Program Office is funded by the Department of Health and Human Services, Bureau of Health Professions. The Program Office administers a multidisciplinary academic consortium at SLU that includes representatives from the cooperating schools of Medicine, Nursing, Allied Health, Public Health, and Social Service.

The Biomedical Careers Program (BCP) began in 1978 as an academic enrichment program for undergraduate students interested in careers in the health professions. The program targets undergraduates who are economically and/or educationally disadvantages. BCP offers an intensive six-week summer program to serve students at all stages of undergraduate education. Students take part in a variety of science enrichment and healthcare-oriented activities.
BCP is sponsored by UMDNJ-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School, Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey, the New Jersey Educational Opportunity Fund (EOF) and the Health Careers Opportunity Program.
The academic component consists of science courses, relevant lab work, research and clinical experience as well as cognitive skills seminars and MCAT preparation.
The Biomedical Careers Program consists of three levels:
Level I is designed for students who have just begun pre-professional studies and have completed at least one year of college and one semester of general chemistry, introductory biology and introductory math, respectively.
Level II is designed for students who have completed at least one semester of general chemistry, organic chemistry, physics, college-level mathematics and two semesters of general biology.
Level III is designed for students who are at or near the point of applying to professional schools and have completed most pre-professional science requirements.
Placement of students will be based on an evaluation of each student’s overall academic record, including all courses taken and performance in these courses.
The following are the minimum course requirements which must be completed by the start of the program. Courses may be in progress at the time of application; however, in such cases the Admissions Committee may require a grade report prior to making a decision.
We welcome students who have previously participated in BCP to reapply for admission to a more advanced level.
Because the Biomedical Careers Program is supported by New Jersey state institutions, priority is given to:
