Our summer medical program for high school students in Boston will be taught by Dr. Enrique Valdespino, a Harvard trained instructor and Doctors Without Borders provider. This program gives you a 360 degree view of the medical and healthcare field through immersive learning and hands-on projects.
Excursions in Boston – Students will visit the medical simulation center at Brigham & Women’s Hospital, a nationally-recognized teaching hospital for Harvard University, as well as Harvard Medical School.
Topics you'll explore
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.
Meet a variety of experts in the field of healthcare that will provide advice and tips on academic preparation and professional pathways to explore. Brigham & Women's Hospital is a nationally-recognized teaching hospital, and has the charitable missions of furthering and improving patient care, undertaking biomedical research, and engaging in educational activities benefiting medical students, interns, residents, and other medical personnel.
