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 the UCSF KANBAR simulation center for hands-on practice in stitching, suturing, intubation, and BLS skills led by leading medical trainers. In addition to being CPR certified, students in this program have also had either the opportunity to meet the Emergency Response team at Berkeley Fire Dept #3 for an ambulance tour or have access to an Anatomage Table, the most technologically advanced 3D anatomy visualization and virtual dissection tool for anatomy and physiology education.
