Information about Penn Medicine Summer Program

Are you a high school student thinking about a career in medicine or medical research?

The Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania is offering a 4-week summer medical camp for highly motivated high school juniors and seniors. Students are guided and taught by Penn Medicine faculty and staff and are immersed into the world of medicine as they explore the career possibilities available to medical students.

This is one of the top medical school programs for high school students and features lectures, demonstrations, discussions, hands-on sessions, and field excursions designed to expose students to the fascinating world of modern medicine.

Students experience several different medical careers and get an in depth perspective on what it takes to become a doctor. Students enjoy a unique variety of learning opportunities in order to help them understand the demands and stresses of pursuing a career in medicine. This is an opportunity for teenagers to experience what medical school is really like and evaluate if it is the right choice for them.

Penn Medicine High School Students will:

  • Visit an Emergency Room, an ICU, and the proton therapy division of the hospital

  • Become certified in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)

  • Learn to suture, tie surgical knots, biopsy, and even perform virtual surgery at the state-of-the-art Penn Clinical Simulation Center

  • Attend daily "Grand Rounds" lectures from Penn clinicians, on topics such as cancer, surgery, transplantation, emergency medicine and resuscitation science

  • Observe actual surgery via live feed in our "76ers" training theater

  • Listen to lung sounds and heart sounds

  • Visit the world-renowned Mütter Museum, America’s finest museum of medical history, to see its collection of anatomical specimens

This pre college summer medical "camp" program is for dedicated and determined high school students who are serious about a career in medicine; it gives each student the opportunity to discover their passions and interests and discern which career path is best for them.
