MEDacademy Masters is an advanced two-week medical education experience program for highly motivated and dedicated MEDacademy graduates who want to further expand their knowledge and skills in the field of medicine. This program builds on the medical education foundation learned in MEDacademy and offers a progressive educational and a hands-on learning experience to prepare high school seniors and college freshman for the rigors of college level health sciences courses.
MEDacademy Masters takes you on an exploration of how the body works with the study of the Musculoskeletal (muscular and skeletal) System. You will discover how the body moves and will learn about the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of the diseases and disorders that affect the function of the form, support, stability and movement to the body through lectures, active learning groups, gross anatomy lab cadaver dissection sessions, hands-on demonstrations and interactive clinical settings. You will gain expanded knowledge and experience in the field of medicine, learning from demonstrations in clinical settings, simulated patient exams and featured guest speakers from a variety of specialties including: orthopaedics, emergency medicine, family medicine, sports medicine and more. To conclude the full medical school experience, you will present a final group project during the graduation ceremony.
