Biomedical Summer Enrichment Program
The vision of Biomedical Summer Enrichment Program - Science Service, Medicine, and Mentoring (S2M2) is “to cultivate the next generation of top quality, culturally competent academic physicians and scientists.” Students attending the program will learn various aspects of the medical profession and medical specialties, as well as the importance of cultural competence, service activities and professionalism. They will participate in hands-on workshops addressing a range of medical specialties including simulated obstetrical delivery (obstetrics/ gynecology), identification of disease in plasticized human organs (pathology), brain anatomy (neuroscience), risk factors for cardiovascular disease with dissection (cardiology), and suture or surgical knot tying (surgery). When students are not engaged in workshops, they will take field trips.
At the end of the program, the students will hold a community health fair where they will present research based on medical concerns or health disparities relevant to their community. Past topics have included diabetes, hypertension, obesity, sudden infant death syndrome and tuberculosis.
