Welcome! Undergraduate study is an enriching opportunity that allows you to explore your many interests through classwork and hands-on experience. The Office of Science Education Outreach (OSEO), Health Sciences, at the University of Pittsburgh is committed to guiding you along your journey of science exploration and professional career options in the health sciences. We are here to support your interest in biomedical science including biomedical research opportunities, finding a compatible mentor, and preparing you for graduate and/or professional school (Dental Medicine, Medicine, Nursing, Pharmacy, Public Health, and Health and Rehabilitation). The OSEO is here to support you along your academic and career paths in the health science fields.

The Office of Science Education Outreach (OSEO) provides opportunities for undergraduates to receive hands-on biomedical research training experiences under close supervision of world-class faculty mentors. This program is designed to prepare undergraduates to begin or further their studies in biomedical research and learn important skills to help prepare them for success in college and future careers in science and medicine.

Students (mentees) can work with a mentor on a research project during the academic year as well as during the summer.
