Mini Medical School 2: Beyond the Basics

This week-long program is designed for the more serious student, who wants to build on the lessons they learned in our introductory Mini Medical School camp. In this program, you will begin learning how to correlate scientific aspects of various systems of the human body (nervous, cardiovascular, digestive, and others) with some clinical manifestations of related diseases that can occur with them. You'll study the various systems through a combination of short lectures, hands-on activities, and selected dissections of mammalian organ specimens. We'll take several field trips that will give you an inside look at medical education and the delivery of health care, as well as an excellent understanding of the various team players (physicians, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, medical assistants, and others) who are all working to improve public health. Please see the prerequisite section below to determine if this camp is appropriate for you.

Sadia Jamshad is a current medical student at the Medical College of Georgia as well as a member of the first 7-year class of BS/MD students at Augusta University. Throughout her educational career, Sadia has always dedicated a portion of her time to teach others. She spent afternoons at local elementary schools tutoring children in math and science while in high school and worked at the Math Assistance Center at Augusta University to help students in calculus, college algebra, statistics, and more. Now as a medical student, she is continuing the trend by teaching Mini Medical School at the University of Georgia. Sadia has fed her interest in medicine by volunteering at Wellstar Kennestone Hospital during many summers since high school, and has volunteered and shadowed at AU Health Hospital and its associated clinics run by medical students. Her goal is not only to spread knowledge and passion about the medical field, but to also be a role model for those around her. This is Sadia’s first year as a Summer Academy instructor.
