Program Description

Our established Medical Science camps are designed for high school students (grades 9-11) who are interested in a clinical or research career in medicine. These camps include opportunities to meet clinicians and scientists and discuss careers in the medical and allied health professions. Students can expect an exciting time of scientific inquiry.

  • Medicine and Human Disease I

    July 6 - 10, 2020

    The focus of this camp will be on systemic diseases, including cardiovascular disease, pulmonary disease, metabolic disease and cancer. Students will conduct tests for measuring normal organ function and will learn how to perform several routine diagnostic and medical laboratory procedures. They will also examine preserved human organs, both macroscopically and microscopically, and will learn how to distinguish healthy and diseased tissues.

  • Epidemics and Infectious Disease

    July 13 - 17, 2020

    This camp will give students interested in biomedical research an exciting opportunity to explore the diverse world of microbes. Students will participate in the collection and isolation of microorganisms and learn laboratory techniques required for growing, visualizing, and identifying bacterial organisms as a basis for gaining valuable insight into the world of epidemiology. They will learn about infections and epidemics, and how science is attempting to stay one step ahead of microbes in an arms race that threatens our very existence.
