The SUMR program is an endeavor by the Leonard Davis Institute of Health Economics (LDI) and the Health Care Systems Department of the Wharton School to provide underrepresented minority undergraduate students, or anyone who is interested in an opportunity to explore the exciting field of health services research. Program participants will be expected to have an interest in health care and strong quantitative skills. Candidates from minority groups that are underrepresented in the field of health services research (African-American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American, Pacific Islander) are particularly encouraged to apply. Prospective participants do not have to make a commitment in advance to attend graduate school in order to be accepted into the program, but an academic or research career should be something they might consider. A committee of Penn faculty selects each year's SUMR scholars from the highly competitive applicant pool.
