Medical Diagnosis and Treatment Summer Program
This week-long summer program for students currently in grades 9-12 provides an engaging, hands-on learning opportunity for students interested in health professions. It will take place at the UH Mānoa John A. Burns School of Medicine in Kakaʻako.
Through gross anatomy laboratory demonstrations, clinical skills laboratories, computerized manikin simulations, and standardized patient interactions, students will learn how to:
- describe the epidemiology, signs and symptoms, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses common in Hawaii
- perform basic clinical skills such as measuring vital signs and listening to the heart and lungs with stethoscopes
- interview and counsel patients
The Medical Diagnosis and Treatment program is part of UH Mānoa Outreach College’s Summer Programs. The fee is $500.
