MEDacademy Information

MEDacademy is a four-week summer day program designed to introduce high school students to medical school and helps to refine their particular interest in health care. Students are exposed to four featured medical specialties - Pathology, Cardiopulm, GI and Neurology - 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 (contingent on CUHC’s policy of allowing visitors, based on the COVID-19 global health pandemic). To conclude the full medical school experience, students present a final group research project during our closing ceremony.

MEDacademy will take place at the CMSRU Medical Education Building (401 South Broadway, Camden, New Jersey, 08103) from Monday, July 3 through Friday, July 28, 2023 (Tuesday, July 4 is a national holiday and we will not have classes on that day). The program runs Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

We will be hosting a virtual information session to provide additional details about the Summer 2023 program.
