The courses offered are:
Medical Research: Clinical Trials Resulting in Medical Discoveries
Every vaccine, drug, and treatment used in medicine is the result of evidence-based research. For a cancer therapy to succeed, medical researchers have to ask a question. Will it work? In this course you will learn the process researchers use to formulate, conduct, and evaluate the evidence they gather. You will be tasked with developing your own study using professional methods. For any high schooler thinking about a future in STEM, medical research, pharmaceuticals or medical school, this course is for you.
Becoming a Surgeon: Skills, Specialties, and Diseases
Have you always been fascinated by how surgeons save lives? Is it your dream to dive into the world of surgery? This is a course for people who love the challenge of diagnosing a disease and treating it through surgery. Study diseases of the abdomen and create your own model of the major organs and vascular structures. Learn about emerging technologies, such as robotics and digital scanning. Discover the jobs of an OR team and hear from specialists like gynecologists, radiologists, and trauma surgeons. If you have a passion for surgical medicine, this course is for you!
Cost and Session Information
All course options, whether 1, 2, or 4 weeks, have the identical educational content, learning materials, and number of assignments. The difference in length of course is due to time of year (not amount of instruction). We know the school year keeps you busy, so we’ve made the course longer during that time so that you can get assignments done.
Fees: $1495 for all programs
