summer is a relaxing time before returning to campus for
another intense academic and athletic year. For Jordan
Pettaway, member of the Chowan Women's Basketball
program, this summer is all work and no play. Pettaway
was one of 30 undergraduate students nationwide to spend
six weeks at the University of Virginia School of
Medicine in their new Summer Medical Leadership Program.
The Summer Medical Leadership Program (SMLP) is an
intensive six-week residential medical academic
enrichment program for 30 undergraduate students that
make up underrepresented groups and/or disadvantaged
backgrounds who are interested in pursuing careers in
medicine. The number one goal of SMLP is to expose
the participants to the "real world of medicine" to
prepare them not only for admission to medical school
but to assume future leadership positions in
