CHOP - Dates

What are the program dates? Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Summer Program in Pediatric Medicine is a 2 week residential program. The program begins on Sunday, June 28 and ends on Saturday, July 11.

May I depart early?: This is only a four-week program and you have academic obligations all the way through Friday afternoon, so normally, we'd say no. That said, if you needed to catch a flight later on Friday night, we might be able to work something out. If you get accepted, please email help@jkcp.com with the specifics of your request before you RSVP or pay.
