This week-long session is designed to expose serious students to different aspects of medical sciences. Gain appreciation for a pathologist’s perspective at the autopsy laboratory at the University of Texas Medical Branch- not only is it a first-rate teaching hospital, it’s the first medical school in Texas! (This does not mean that the camper will witness or participate in an autopsy). Spend a day touring clinics at M.D. Anderson Cancer Center, ranked the #1 cancer hospital in the world! Discover the difference that doctors and therapists make in a child’s life at Shriners Hospital for Children, an innovative free hospital that provides highly specialized (orthopedic and burn) pediatric care. A very privileged tour of the Human Genome project at Baylor College of Medicine helps students realize the impact of genetic research in finding cures for many diseases. This camp is created for apt students with a serious passion for helping others, and a high interest in pursuing a medical career. The camp consists of lectures and private tours of real laboratories, treatment centers, and working clinics. Due to the sensitive nature of the some excursions (patients, remains, and specimens), regulations require that campers be at least 16 years. **All Field Trips tentative!
