Have you ever wondered — Why do people get sick? How can we prevent the spread of disease? What do doctors REALLY do?  If so, the U of A College of Medicine in Phoenix has a summer program for you! 

Be a part of Med-Start Phoenix, a two-week day program with a fast paced curriculum sure to help confirm your healthcare interest.  The  Program is designed to inspire Arizona high school students to explore their existing interest in the health professions. Each of the three Med-Start Phoenix summer sessions include hands-on activities, field trips, community service projects, simulation and related lab experiences, culminating projects and lectures from medical students, faculty and community members. 

The unique sessions will highlight three healthcare themes: Scientific Research, Arizona’s Healthcare Needs and the Healthcare Team.  There are separate sessions for current 9th and 10th grade and 11th and 12th grade students.  Applications are electronic and are due March 15.  There are limited slots, so interested students better get on the stick.
