Medical Rounds

1-week Concentration

Step into the shoes of a medical doctor and try your hand at several specialties from cardiology and pulmonology to radiology and more.

Practice taking vital signs, assessing 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.

COURSE HIGHLIGHTS

Body Systems – Explore major body systems through a pig dissection, and discover how the organs and skeletal structure relate to the human body, uncovering a world of medical terminology.

Diagnostic Tests – Review and interpret diagnostic texts, from MRI images to hemoglobin counts in blood tests. Identify healthy and unhealthy tissue under the microscope slides, and use the results of these tests to create a diagnosis.

Trip: Medical Simulation Labs – Visit state-of-the-art medical simulation labs to hone your medical skills. Whether placing IVs or a central line, scrubbing into surgery, or responding to a patient in cardiac arrest, you’ll receive real-time feedback from doctors and nurses.

Case Studies – Assess a variety of patient case studies and order imaging and lab tests for each, reviewing their symptoms and test results before announcing your final diagnosis. From the most common symptoms to those that still stump doctors, you’ll deepen your medical understanding and diagnostic abilities with each file.

Get out of the classroom and into the real world.

Immersive projects, expert professionals, career connections — every day at
EXPLO is packed with opportunities to explore the world of people and ideas.

Medical Rounds taught me so much about medicine and what I need to know for my future career in the medical field. The instructors were incredible, and I really got an insider’s experience of the pace of working inside a hospital. There were so many things I thought I already knew about that turned out to be more complicated and complex. It was incredibly eye-opening for me.

WHAT IS A CONCENTRATION?

Concentrations at EXPLO are a deep dive into a single subject for students who have a strong sense of what they’re interested in and what they may want to pursue for a career or future study.

Students who enroll in a concentration take just the single course over the course of one or two weeks (depending upon which program you choose). While you are part of the larger EXPLO community, you’ll find that most of your time is spent with your Intensive cohort — other students who, like you, are completely dialed in to the subject you’re exploring.
