A Study Skills Curriculum for Pipeline Programs.
Saks, Norma Susswein, Ed.; Killeya, Ley A., Ed.; Rushton, Joan, Ed.
This study skills curriculum is part of a "pipeline" program designed to recruit, matriculate, and graduate educationally disadvantaged students at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey-Robert Wood Johnson Medical School (UMDNJ-RWJMS). It is an integral part of the Biomedical Careers Program (BCP) and the Science Enrichment Program (SEP) and offers diagnostic evaluation, individual study skills assistance, learning strategies sessions, and test-tasking strategies. The BCP is an eight-week summer program combining science course work, laboratories, and study skills instruction; it is offered to underrepresented minority and economically disadvantaged undergraduate students who wish to pursue careers in health fields. The Science Enrichment Program (SEP) is a six-week summer program for high school juniors or seniors who are interested in science or healthcare careers; it is anticipated that SEP enrollees would later be eligible for the BCP. Following the Introduction, the first sections of the text present an overview and the detailed curriculum for weeks 1-6 of the SEP. The next sections present overviews and curricula for the BCP level 1 and level 2 programs. Three appendixes contain study skills test taking materials for the SEP and BCP level 1 and level 2 programs. (RH)
