Heart-thumping emergency scenes meet the latest breakthrough technologies in emergency medicine in this exciting new program! Students will preview actual case studies of trauma from accident scenes ranging from car accidents to the aftermath of natural disasters such as hurricanes or avalanches.
In cases that require surgical intervention, they will preview anatomical structures and surgical techniques, conducting their own mock surgery and practicing their suturing techniques. They will learn about imaging techniques such as x-rays, MRIs, and techniques used by radiologists to assess the extent and nature of injuries.
For sprains and like injuries, they will learn diagnosis techniques and practice splinting injuries.
Teens will examine treatment for burn injuries as well, learning about and practicing immediate life-saving techniques. They will learn about longer-term solutions as well such as skin-grafting and advances from biomedical engineering that employ tissue scaffolding to create sheets of skin that may be used to save the lives of burn victims.
This is a competitive admissions summer research program designed for teens.

The program has been truly amazing. Not only did I learn a lot and expand my knowledge of medicine, but I also had fun doing it. Rony truly made this experience unique. He showed interest in our ideas of a future career in medicine. I could not have asked for a better teacher or a better time.- Student Comment - July 26, 2019
Rony was a wonderful teacher who was truly knowledgeable about the topic of emergency medicine. Handling a real ultrasound on a real human, interacting with an ER simulation and asking EMTs and an ER doctor about the field were awesome."- Student Comment - July 19, 2019
"The program of Emergency Medicine gave me a well developed insight into the field I aspire to take part in, but it also gave me enough confidence and experience to act on certain emergency situations that inevitably will occur in times to come.- Student Comment - July 19, 2019
"The program was very hands on allowing me to not only absorb the information through lectures, but also while applying it through simulations. I LOVED this program.- Student Comment - July 19, 2019
