Science Medicine and Related Topics (SMART) 

SMART was established at New Jersey Medical School in 1991 as a health and biomedical professions pathway program. SMART is a pre-college enrichment program designed to cultivate students’ interest in health science and research. Culminating in enhanced competitiveness, this program aims to expand the pool of economically and educationally disadvantaged students interested in pursuing health-related professions. SMART focuses on youth development and academic excellence, provides opportunities to students to gain the knowledge and experiences necessary to maximize their potential for success.  

During theWinter SMART Program, we accept students in grades 6th – 12th. During the Summer SMART Program, we accept students who are rising 7th – 12th graders. 


The mission of the SMART Program is to advance the understanding, knowledge and appreciation of science and medicine among economically & educationally disadvantaged students who wish to pursue careers in medicine, dentistry, biomedical research and other health-related careers.
