Pathways Frequently Asked Questions

1.   Why was The Winter Institute established?
We saw the need to reach those students who are not able to travel to and attend The Summer Institute in-person at the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences in Bethesda, MD and/or for whom the summer does not fit their schedule.

2.   Can I attend both The Summer Institute and The Winter Institute?
No, you cannot attend both institutes. Students have to choose one or the other. Also, attending both would be redundant as several sessions and panels are the same.

3.   If I am not accepted to The Summer Institute, can I apply to The Winter Institute?
Yes, you can apply to the Winter Institute if you are not accepted to The Summer Institute. Likewise, if you are not accepted to The Winter Institute, you can apply to The Summer Institute.
