We have a summer in Storrs for you!
UConn's Pre-College Summer Pre-Med: Human Pathology course provides high school students the opportunity to explore the anatomical effects of sports related injury at a nationally ranked public university campus.
Where will you be in five years?
That’s a hard question to answer, especially for high school students. UConn’s Pre-College Summer can help students figure it out. Offered during Session 3, our Pre-Med: Human Pathology course examines the kinds of anatomical changes that take place when someone experiences common injuries, especially those that occur on the playing field or for those who lead active lifestyles.
Students will learn about these injuries and what happens to our body when these injuries occur through high level simulations that allow us to see the body in 3D. Students will also learn how to evaluate people for certain kinds of injuries, like sprained ankles and torn ACLs, through direct examination. Lastly, we’ll use dissection of real human cadavers as a hands-on experience to look at the relationship between muscle, bone, ligament and tendon, and see what happens when these connections are severed to replicate real life injuries.
