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.
