CPE Application Procedures

A standard ACPE application is required. An application may be obtained from the HUP Coordinator of CPE, Rhoda Toperzer, by e-mailing rhoda.toperzer@uphs.upenn.edu or calling 267-251-1812. Also, a form is available on this web site and through the web site of the ACPE. An on-site interview at UPHS is usually required. (This is often waived for summer intern applicants, provided there has been a screening interview with an ACPE Supervisor or approved interviewer.) Special arrangements are made with foreign applicants.
