Overview

Our summer medical program for high school students gives you a 360 degree view of the medical and healthcare field, as well as immersive learning through hands-on projects and simulations.

Excursions may include the STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation for training, research and education at Brigham and Women’s Hospital. The Neil and Elise Wallace STRATUS Center for Medical Simulation is committed to advancing medical education, patient safety, and healthcare outcomes through cutting edge application of medical simulation technologies supported by innovative curricula, contemporary educational methodologies, continuous improvement, and rigorous, multidisciplinary research.

Hands-On Learning

Learn basic medical skills and get training on how to handle situations when medical care is not immediately available. Simulations will allow you to learn and practice hands-on medical techniques including positioning and extraction, wound care, control of bleeding, stitches and sutures, usage of splints and slings, and other useful potentially life-saving skills. In small groups, your medical team will be required to research the patient’s history and symptoms, create a diagnosis based on your findings, and develop a treatment plan.

Career Exploration

Throughout the program, meet a variety of experts in the field of healthcare that will provide advice and tips on academic preparation and professional pathways to explore. We will discuss the wide variety of professions within the medical field, such as physical therapy, physician's assistants, phlebotomy and more. You'll get a deeper sense of your unique motivations and aptitudes and how that aligns with potential academic and career choices. This helps students make better informed decisions about some of life’s most important choices.
