Eighty-six trainees participated in the program between 2001 and 2018. Sixty-five percent were accepted into PhD programs and 48% into professional schools or Master’s programs (totals more than 100% as some students are counted in both categories). Retention is 92% in post-PREP training, well above the average nationally for PREP (~63%). Overall, 98% of PREP Scholars remain in research-intensive or research-related careers. The majority of the participants were African- American at 74% or Hispanics at 21%. The PREP pipeline accounts for 20-30% of the minority students in WFUGS biomedical sciences programs, which contributed to an increased percentage of under-represented minority students from less than 5% fifteen years ago, to 16-20% over the past several years. Twenty-two students have already completed the PhD, 84% of those entered post-doctoral training programs, and 10 now hold academic positions. Approximately 12% of PREP trainees came from our summer programs.
