Boston Education, Advising & Mentoring in STEM (BEAMS)
- BEAMS is a pipeline program created by the Department of MedSci&Edu with three inter-related student levels: high-school level, undergraduate level, and post-graduate level. Between 2017 and 2020, we partnered with the Boston Area Health Education Center (BAHEC). In 2021, BEAMS enlarged its scope and is now reaching out to all BPS students in order to provide career exploration and mentoring for all high-school students attending Boston Public Schools in grades 9 through 12. BEAMS provides programming by collaboration with faculty and students from Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine and Graduate Medical Sciences (GMS). BEAMS also provides programming by collaboration with students in the BU Kilachand Honors College. In addition, BEAMS has partnered with the Pre-Health Programs at BU College of Arts & Sciences and the College Access & Student Success Office at BU Wheelock College of Education & Human Development, in our efforts to create bridges between high-school students and undergraduate students as well as bridges between undergraduate students and post-graduate students.
