Medical Rotations

Work side-by-side with physicians, nurses and medical researchers as you explore different specialties at state-of-the-art medical simulation centers and research laboratories.

Under the guidance of medical experts, you’ll look through the lens of a third-year med school student and gain clinical skills while wrestling with case studies and simulated patient encounters. Rotate through specialties like internal medicine, oncology, pediatrics, emergency medicine, obstetrics, and surgery. Receive updates on patients during rounds and determine the best course of treatment by monitoring vital signs, reviewing patient charts, and navigating electronic health records. Enhance your decision-making capabilities and learn essential leadership and teamwork skills as your team responds to a drop in your patient’s vitals and answer rapid-fire questions from doctors and the interprofessional team. Learn the importance of avoiding snap judgments, contending with uncertainty, communicating effectively and humanely, and working as an effective team to deliver quality care to your patients.

In EXPLO Medical Rotations, you’ll get access to clinical training experiences that are usually reserved only for professionals and medical students. You’ll network with doctors in a variety of medical careers and practice in a state-of-the-art medical simulation lab. You’ll begin to see the world differently – through the eyes of a doctor.

“Many of the EXPLO experiences I had regarding medicine confirmed that this is the path for me, I wish that school would be more interactive, and tied to real world scenarios, like many of EXPLO’s activities. Participating in activities and experiences that connect what we’re learning to real life situations has always been a very helpful and motivating learning tool for me, which I rarely experienced in high school.”
