MEDCAMP, July 7-9

From Thursday, July 7, through Saturday, July 9, a group of undergraduate students will gather on our campus to participate in the 31st year of the MEDCAMP program.

MEDCAMP is designed to provide hands-on experiences in bio-medical science workshops involving research, clinical problem-solving and an introduction to the fields of clinical medicine.

Participants join physicians, NEOMED medicine students, faculty and researchers in performing applied activities, where they learn how a physician talks with a patient, how to study the clues to a patient’s illness, to solve medical cases by using critical thinking skills in addition to learning modern laboratory techniques.

Participants also complete a case study on a fictitious patient.

If you would like more information about the MEDCAMP program, please contact Rebecca Johnson at

MEDCAMP is sponsored by the Area Health Education Center located in the Department of Family and Community Medicine at NEOMED.
