Medical Diagnosis and Treatment Summer Program
Date: July 8 – 12, 2024, 8:00 a.m. – 3:30 p.m.
This week-long summer program for students currently in grades 10-12 provides an engaging, hands-on learning opportunity for students interested in health professions. It will be in-person at the UH Mānoa John A. Burns School of Medicine in Kaka‘ako. If required by state or institutional public health and restrictions at the medical school at the time, this program may change to a hybrid activity with in-person and virtual activities or to an entirely virtual activity.
The program usually includes gross anatomy laboratory demonstrations, clinical skills laboratories, computerized manikin simulations, and simulated patient interactions that enables students to 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’s Summer Programs. The fee is $525. There are a few needs-based scholarships that cover the registration fee.
