  • Honestly everything, the RAs, the trips, the teachers, the campus. It was all amazing to me. I was apart of the emergency medicine track, and I’ve found myself using different skills I’ve learned even in different subject. I’ve used suture knots in my art and bio classes. I’ve gotten to help other people make basic decisions if something hurts based off of what I learned. It was a really valuable experience. I also made a lot of amazing friends, and still talk to them this day.

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.

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