The overall goal of PREP is to support and prepare individuals from diverse backgrounds (for examples of groups underrepresented in the biomedical sciences see the
Notice of NIH’s Interest in Diversity) to transition into and complete rigorous, research-focused doctoral degree programs (e.g., Ph.D. or M.D./Ph.D.) in biomedical fields. In accordance with this goal, applicant institutions should recruit postbac scholars who have expressed a strong desire to pursue research-focused doctoral degrees in the biomedical sciences, and for whom a one-year research education program would enhance their ability to transition into and complete doctoral studies. PREP programs are not intended to prepare scholars for medical degrees. For more information, please read the program announcement (PAR-20-066).
