Ethnically diverse university students and recent graduates in technical fields are invited to apply (Hispanic Americans, Pacific Islanders, African Americans and Native Americans).  To qualify, applicants must be interested in a career in biotechnology, medical technology or consumer healthcare industries and seek to receive career mentoring and training from industry leaders.

Both year-long programs begin with a 5-day training session.  SMDP Biotech will be June 1-6, 2024, in San Diego and SMDP MedTech will be October 12-17, 2024, in Toronto, Canada.  Participants will also attend a major industry conference.

During SMDP, Scholars will be paired with industry mentors to learn about career opportunities in industry and receive career development coaching.   As part of the program, Scholars and their mentors create personalized mentoring plans, which they implement over the course of the year following the training session.  The mentor-mentee teams communicate regularly by telephone and email, aided by ICPD staff and the internet-based SMDP Mentoring Portal.”
