Course Overview

High School Medical Education Online

In this medical program for high school students, participants collaboratively solve medical mystery cases, similar to the approach used in many medical schools. Students use problem-solving techniques in order to understand and appreciate relevant medical/biological facts as they confront the principles and practices of medicine, and enhance their critical thinking skills through:

  • Examining data
  • Drawing conclusions
  • Making diagnoses
  • Treating patients

Enhancing Critical Thinking in a Medical Environment

Students explore anatomy and physiology pertaining to medical scenarios and gain an understanding of the disease process, demographics of disease, and pharmacology. Additional learning experiences in this high school summer medical program include studying current issues in health and medicine, interviewing a patient, and creating a new mystery case.
