Medical Science 7-9

Students get an introduction to the field of medicine through a variety of hands-on activities, examining both the science behind modern medicine, as well as its practical applications.

Week 1 investigates major anatomical systems and our medical approach to them, exploring our cardiovascular, pulmonary, lymphatic, and musculoskeletal systems through activities including dissection and realistic simulations of suturing and phlebotomy. Week 2 introduces pathology, epidemiology, and the treatment of disease through pharmaceuticals. Experiments with student maintained bacterial cultures demonstrate immune system function and antibiotic efficacy.

Online Adaptation:
In the online format, Week 1 takes the form of an advanced anatomy class as students participate in interactive activities to explore major body systems. Week 2 focuses on immunology along with the pathology and treatment of diseases with an in-depth look at and discussion of the COVID-19 pandemic.
