Considering a career in medicine? Do you biology, are you fascinated with the human body, or want a career helping people but aren’t sure where to start?
Join high school students from across North American (and the world!) at one of seven prestigious university campuses in the United States, where you'll engage in coursework designed to give you a leg up in the field and help you decide if this is the educational path for you. Learn from experienced and accomplished instructors (ER doctors, EMTs, hospital administrators, nurses, etc.) and get hands-on with simulations like stitches and sutures, splinting, making treatment plans, and taking medical history.
On the weekend and in the evenings, typical camp fun will ensue: take field trips to local attractions (Six Flags, the beach, the Statue of Liberty, for example), hang out in the quad with your classmates, or showcase your special skills in the talent show.
Campuses that include this academic track for 2024 are:
- Georgetown University
- Georgia Tech
- New York
- UC Berkeley
- UC Los Angeles (UCLA)
- UC San Diego (UCSD)
