Course Overview

This program provides middle school students interested in pursuing medicine with real hands-on experience where they can build a set of medical skills at an early age.

Imagine being able to set a splint, stop a bleed, and perform CPR as a middle school student! Students will learn medical techniques through age-appropriate simulations and guided lessons. In addition, they’ll work with small groups to research a patient’s history and symptoms, create a diagnosis based on findings, and develop a treatment plan.

Excursions at UC Berkeley include:

  • – Dynamic and innovative companies in Silicon Valley and across the Bay Area, such as Apple HQ, Stanford University, and other institutions.
  • – Famous landmarks in San Francisco: The Golden Gate Bridge, Fisherman’s Wharf, and more!
  • – A day of fun at California’s Great America amusement park featuring Gold Striker, a top-ranked wooden roller coaster.

The Middle School programs operate separately from Summer Springboard high school programs with separate staff, accommodations, schedules, classes, activities, and a more structured environment.
