Medical Rounds is a one-week focus program on the campus of Wellesley College entering grades 8-10.
Try your hand at several specialties from cardiology and pulmonology to radiology and more. Practice taking vital signs, assessing a patient history, and refining your bedside manner before tackling real-world case studies — created by Dr. Andrew Eyre of Brigham and Women’s Hospital — and collaborating with your peers to assess patients’ symptoms and quickly solve each case.
As a Medical Rounds student, you’ll work with medical professionals from top hospitals, practices, and simulation labs to develop skills from suturing and intubation to starting an IV and reading an X-ray. Ask questions, get advice, and make connections that can help you visualize future career paths in medicine.
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 Medical Rounds:
EXPLO at Yale (Grades 10-12)
EXPLO at Wellesley (Grades 8+9)
