Have you ever wondered about becoming a doctor? MEDacademy can provide a one-of-a-kind opportunity to explore the world of medicine. Cooper Medical School of Rowan University (CMSRU) is looking for highly motivated and talented high school students interested in becoming a physician. If you will be a rising high school junior or senior in summer 2019, MEDacademy may be the medical education program for you.
The four-week summer day program introduces high school students to medical school and helps to refine their particular interest in health care. Students are exposed to four featured medical specialties and participate in lectures, hands-on demonstrations, case-based learning activities, and interactive clinical simulations taught by our faculty, medical students and staff. Students experience firsthand what it is like to be a doctor, learning from featured guest speakers and guided tours of Cooper University Hospital. To conclude the full medical school experience, students present a final group project during a graduation ceremony.
