So What's up Doc?

This course is expected to run but has not yet been scheduled.

Course Description

Are you interested in a career in medicine? This one week course will introduce you to Medical Education "Brown" style and help you decide if medicine might be the right career for you. We will look at characteristics of a "good physician," shadow members of the Brown Medical faculty, tour the Brown Medical School (anatomy lab and the hospitals), do a quick study of histology, interview a "standardized patient" and discuss an ethics case. Our goal is to give students who have considered a medical career a brief glimpse of what it might take to become a physician.

Don't miss this opportunity to come join us and see if medicine is "what's up for you." This course is not for students who are pretty certain they wish to be physicians, rather it is for those who may have more than a passing interest.

It is strongly recommended that applicants successfully complete a basic course in high school biology prior to enrolling in this course.
