College of Medicine Summer Program
The Office of Community Partnerships and Health Policy has partnered with the OUHSC College of Medicine to create a summer program experience for high school seniors entitled “College of Medicine Summer Program”. This program introduces options for careers in medicine to academically promising high school students in their senior year. The four week program will increase students’ awareness of the various areas related to the medical profession. As a result of participating in the program, students’ confidence in their ability to pursue medical training will increase. At the same time, they will be introduced to the academic rigor required in the profession. Students will also gain firsthand knowledge of the requirements to be accepted into medical school.
During this program, which operates from 9:00 am – 12:00 pm, students will participate in a number of activities that will broaden their understanding of the medical profession. Students will also complete a research project on a medical topic of interest. Clinical opportunities will be provided at the College of Medicine’s Clinical Skills Education and Testing Center and other locations within the OU Medical Center and the surrounding area.
The application for 2015 will be available next March, 2015.
