The Summer Enrichment Experience (SEE) program is designed to promote science and medicine to area high school students. In so doing, we hope not only to encourage these students to pursue careers in science and medicine, but also to gain an appreciation of behaviors that are fundamental to healthy lifestyles.
We are seeking students who are under-represented in healthcare fields, and who have maintained at least an average GPA of 2.75, to participate in the SEE program.
There is no cost for this program, and lunch will be provided Monday-Thursday.
SEE activities, which are under the direction of faculty and medical students, include the following (please allow for some yearly variation in programming):
- Interactive lectures
- Cadaver work in our anatomy lab
- Performance of basic medical techniques and procedures on real patients (yourselves!) or with our state-of-the-art simulation models
- Ambulance tour
- Guidance for establishing a career in science and medicine
- Fun activities with a focus on science and medicine
The final day of the program includes a group presentation of a research project to your peers and a fun team game of Medical Jeopardy.
Students will be expected to maintain proper attire. This will be strictly enforced. Many of the program’s activities will take place in the anatomy laboratory. Therefore, open-toed shoes, shorts, hats, low-cut, halter or spaghetti strap tops, mini-skirts, sleeveless shirts, are NOT permitted. Students are advised NOT to use musical devices, cell phones and cameras during the program. Students will be expected to observe departmental policies (to be discussed during orientation) concerning respect to those who have donated their bodies to medical education.
