Little Medical School 4 Teens
All kids love to dress up and play doctor. This hands-on, in-depth experience puts the student in the role of the physician complete with a white coat and real stethoscope. Through interactive and creative demonstrations, crafts, and projects, students see how the body works and what goes wrong with disease states. Our “student doctors” not only learn how to use a stethoscope, but also they learn what they are hearing when they listen to the heartbeat. We discuss why murmurs sound the way they do and that they get their first looks at EKG’s. As “student surgeons” they learn how to sew like a real surgeon, tie knots, and do a hernia repair with mesh! In the blood section, they make a model of normal blood and then see first hand what does wrong with leukemia and sickle cell disease. Additionally, students learn what it takes to prepare for being a pre-med in college and learn important tips to be a successful candidate. This is just a sampling of the many exciting topics we explore. Over six hours of interactive instruction, kids will have a chance to learn about and use common doctor’s tools, how air flows through the lungs, what happens to food when we eat and how the heart works. They’ll even get to listen to a heartbeat using their own personal working stethoscope, which they get to take home at the end of the course!
This course was designed by a team of board-certified physicians and is led by a trained and background-checked instructor passionate about sharing their medical knowledge with young and aspiring “doctors to be.” When your child receives his or her diploma on graduation day, they’ll beam with pride and be ready to teach you everything they’ve learned.
