You will be introduced to the traditional disciplines that medical students encounter during their training through a hands-on laboratory setting in the Georgetown Medical Center. During your eight-day institute, you will get a snapshot of the Georgetown medical school curriculum and address such topics as human anatomy and physiology, microbiology and infectious diseases, surgery, cancer, and biomedical ethics. Students will have the opportunity to work with a patient simulator and focus on some of today's basic medical issues, such as preventative medicine, heart disease and HIV. The Georgetown Medical Center includes the nationally ranked School of Medicine and School of Nursing & Health Studies, in addition to the world-renowned Lombardi Cancer Center.
