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 – All students visit a simulation center for hands-on practice in stitching, suturing, intubation, and BLS skills led by leading medical trainers. Past visits have included the Yale Center for Medical Simulation, the UCSF Kanbar Simulation Center, STRATUS Center (affiliated with Harvard Medical School) and UC San Diego’s SIM Center. Visits provide first-hand observations of the high-pressure/ life-saving world of an emergency room.
