Summer Science Program for High School Students
Harvard Medical School MEDscience Program is offering (3) one week
sessions this summer.
If you have interested students please see our web site for course
dates and application at
www.hmsmedscience.com. We do not offer room and board and the
need to get
to Harvard Medical School each day.
We accept 12 students per course and the program incorporates a
hands-on, experiential pedagogy using patient simulators (a
mannequin that doctors and nurses train on) integrating basic
clinical judgment under the guidance of Harvard Medical School
mentors. During the one-week intensive course, students use the
simulator as their patient. The students are organized in small
groups for interactive case-based sessions including individual and
group feedback. The curriculum is centered around three seminal
medical cases (Asthma, Heart attack and Diabetes) that serve to
illustrate the role of basic and clinical biomedical science in
healthcare. Students are exposed to concepts from physics, biology,
and chemistry, and they are taught - through personal experience -
principles of teamwork, problem solving, and communication. During
programs, students will receive a Basic Life Support certification,
reflecting their acquisition of a crucial life skill.
