Emergency Medicine is a two-week focus program on the campus of Wheaton College for students entering grades 6+7.
The ambulance sirens get louder, the ER doors swing open, and EMTs rush in with your next patient. What do you do next? At Emergency Medicine, you’ll focus on learning how to treat any case that comes crashing through those emergency room doors — but you’ll also understand why it’s important to treat the person as well as their symptoms. Instead of lectures and textbooks (think medical school years one and two), you’ll skip right to year four — intubate, suture, treat, diagnose, and run simulations like you’ve been doing them all your life.
Then picture yourself getting to do it shoulder-to-shoulder with some of Boston’s best doctors and surgeons, who will treat you not as the students you are, but as the doctors and surgeons you are set to become.
Interested in exploring medicine, but not ready to invest all of your time focused on just one subject? Our most popular program – Exploration – might be a better fit for you.
With a number of course and workshop offerings in the medical sciences, Exploration Programs give you the chance to explore your interest in medicine while at the same time giving you the opportunity to explore many more interests via a wide variety of hands-on courses, workshops, activities, events, and trips.
Here are some Exploration course options that are complementary to Emergency Medicine:
