Premed Academy

About the Camp

Explore the human body and the limitless options within the medical field at Penn State Premed Academy! Together, we will navigate through the wonderful world of the human body to learn important anatomical and physiological structures. We won't just learn WHAT is inside your body, but WHY it is there and HOW it works (and how it can malfunction)! Our journey into the health field will include performing our own dissections using animal tissue. You’ll have the opportunity to learn medical techniques, use medical equipment, and gain exposure to the amazing specialties and career possibilities that await in the medical field! (Hint: being a doctor is not the only option!) So, what are you waiting for? Join us for our encore Penn State Premed Academy for high school students!

*Campers will be working with preserved and/or fresh (nonpreserved) animal tissue on a daily basis.* As a result, we recommend this experience only for students who are comfortable working with animal tissue. Please contact Science-U if you have any specific questions about the camp. 

Please note: the first full day of camp is Monday, July 22, but all residential campers will move in the evening of Sunday, July 21.
