Introducing area students to health care proffesions

A group of 50 rising ninth grade students from northeast Ohio will be on campus Thursday, July 21 through Saturday, July 23 for the MEDCAMP program. Now in its 26th year, 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 and pharmacy.

Throughout the program, students will join physicians, pharmacists, NEOMED students, faculty and researchers in performing applied activities, including taking blood pressures, reading EKGs, working in the pharmacy lab and identifying bacteria under a microscope. Students also complete a case study on a fictitious patient.
