Our pre-med summer camp program (unique in this area) exposes students to various medical careers and environments in the safety of a simulated environment. The programs goals are as follows: to give students practical exposure to various medical careers and environments; to provide students with a state-of-the-art learning experience; and to connect core academic skills in math, science, and communication with a real world experience in medicine.
The programs objectives are as follows: all program participants will receive First Aid/CPR/AED training; master basic medical tasks such as administering a shot, taking blood pressure, using a defibrillator, and basic would care, etc.
This program includes the observation of actual medical procedures, dissection of animals, and discussions of anatomy and physiology. The program normally includes an open heart surgery observation at Allegheny General Hospital.
In 2017, the program will run from June 26th-July 28th, Mondays through Thursdays. It is open to students in grades 9-12. Applications are available here: 201704251019, in local school offices or can be picked up directly from the Franklin Center.
