Our education programs will accept applications for Summer 2021, with the understanding that the final format of the programs will depend upon an evidenced-based understanding of the risk posed by COVID-19. If possible, the programs will run as expected and described. However, given the pandemic, the format of the programs may be virtual, or a hybrid of virtual and on-campus. The duration of our programs may also be impacted. We will provide updates as more information becomes available closer to the program start dates.
