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, case studies, and group projects. Please see the prerequisite section below to determine if this camp is appropriate for you. This is also one of our most popular camps, so please consider registering as early as possible for this one!
