A group of 50 students from northeast Ohio, entering their first, second, or third year of undergraduate studies will be on campus Thursday, July 11 through Saturday, July 13 for the annual MEDCAMP program. Now in its 29th 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. Participants join physicians, NEOMED medical 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 Denise Mead at firstname.lastname@example.org.
