Note: Syllabus is subject to change based on availability of guest speakers
Week 1: Introduction to Health & Wellness
  • This week we will introduce ourselves and better understand the variety of health related careers, and the path to achieve these careers. We’ll also learn more about how these different roles interact to ensure strong patient care. Careers discussed may include: osteopathic doctors, physiotherapists, physical therapists, nursing and dentists. We’ll also hear from our first guest speaker!
Week 2: Nursing & Nurse Practitioners
  • This week, we’ll hear from those who are nurses and nurse practitioners to more fully understand how they ensure strong patient care. You'll learn what the path to becoming a nurse or NP looks like and what makes nursing different from other careers in medicine.
Week 3: Nutrition and Exercise Science
  • Healthful eating, exercise and mindfulness are the foundations of good health. This week we’ll explore careers in nutrition, exercise, physical therapy and wellness that support conventional allopathic medicine.
Week 4: Holistic and Alternative Medicine + Share Outs
  • We’ll finalize our exploration with a focus on holistic and alternative medicine. You'll learn about potential career paths within these areas and the necessary steps it takes to become a practitioner. On our last day, we’ll have a chance to discuss what we’ve learned and identify own next steps to pursue our chosen careers.

What Our Students Say

Roxana Ghadimi

"I highly recommend this course for high school students to learn more about what it's like to pursue a career in medicine. It is a long path but a very rewarding career, so knowing if this is something that might interest you early on will give you a great head start in college."

Roxana Ghadimi
Medical Student at NYU Grossman School of Medicine
Victoria Chen

"I wish I had this opportunity in high school! So much of what I knew about medicine was through chance encounters with doctors and sporadic shadowing opportunities. I wish I had access to a structured summer program like this as an intro to the field."
