This summer, Portsmouth high school students will have the opportunity to learn about a broad spectrum of careers in medicine at the EVMS Health Sciences Academy.
The two-week, tuition-free program will include lectures, workshops and hands-on activities. Participants will also be able to interact with physicians and other healthcare professionals through group-shadowing experiences.
Among the topics they will cover are human anatomy, global health, ultrasound, nutrition and virtual reality in healthcare.
“The support and energy coming from the EVMS faculty, staff, and students in putting this Academy together has been amazing,” says Daniel Lewandowski, Program Specialist of Secondary Science at Portsmouth Public Schools. “We feel very fortunate to partner with EVMS and know that the students, faculty and staff will inspire our students to be a part of the future health-sciences workforce.”
The program will run from July 22 to Aug. 2. Upon completion, each student will receive a Certificate of Achievement.
