Students will have the opportunity to learn how to take medical histories from patients, create a differential diagnosis, and think critically to diagnose and treat medical conditions. Our sessions include learning how to take vital signs, performing case presentations to work through pathology in various organ systems, performing organ dissections, learning the basics of suturing, and much more.

In addition to the individualized learning experience, our program also offers group activities designed to simulate the collaborative problem solving required in the medical field.
