The Pre-Med Summer Scholar Program is an intense, one-week, primarily educational program incorporating medical guest speakers and hospital tours and activities giving the Summer Scholar an involved sense of working within the field of medicine. The goal of the program is to expose the Summer Scholar to a variety of medical professions in hope that they make a more informed decision about their own path to medicine. This is not a "summer camp-like" program and housing accommodations are not included. Last year's cirriculum included:
Summer Scholar: “This was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Before this program, I was unsure of the path I wanted to take. The information and fun I got out of the program reinforced my desire [to pursue a career] in the field of medicine. I had a lot of unanswered questions answered…"
Summer Scholar: “The Pre-Med Summer Scholar Program made me excited and motivated to go into medicine. This was a life-changing experience.”
Summer Scholar Parent: “Wonderful and enjoyable program to help the kids learn about their own personal interests and help to lead them towards their future career paths. Truly an experience that a normal classroom cannot provide!”
