Health Professions Recruitment and Exposure Program (HPREP) is a program organized by the Johns Hopkins Chapter of the Student National Medical Association (SNMA). The mission of this program is to support future underrepresented minority medical students, to address the needs of underserved communities, and to increase the number of clinically excellent, culturally competent and socially conscious physicians.

HPREP is a Saturday enrichment program held in the Spring semester to help high school students across Baltimore City and Baltimore County to prepare for college and gain exposure to various career paths in medicine. The sessions held consist of drafting college essays, learning physical exam skills, hearing from physicians of different specialties, and community service.

Beginning in the 2012-13 school year, HPREP has expanded to help run the medical education aspect of the MERIT (Medical Education Resource Initiative for Teens) program. Once a month SNMA volunteers involved in the HPREP program will run 3 hour Saturday sessions in the Fall Semester. These sessions will be held for MERIT scholars, and will consist of educating the students in certain organ systems, hands on learning of physical examination skills, and opportunities to hear from actual physicians in various specialties.
