Medical Diagnosis and Treatment Summer Program
Medical Diagnosis and Treatment is a week-long summer program for high school students in grades 9 – 12. The program provides an engaging, hands-on learning opportunity for high school students interested in health professions. The course takes place at the University of Hawaii John A. Burns School of Medicine (JABSOM) in Kakaako. Students will be able to experience the medical school environment with learning opportunities usually unavailable to anyone other than medical students and physicians. JABSOM is Hawaii’s only medical school and is currently ranked in the top 75 medical schools by U.S. News and World Report.
By the end of the program, through gross anatomy laboratory demonstrations, clinical skills laboratories, computerized manikin simulations, and standardized patient interactions, students will be able to:
- describe the epidemiology, signs and symptoms, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment of illnesses common in Hawaiʻi;
- perform basic clinical skills such as measuring vital signs and listening to the heart and lungs with stethoscopes; and
- interview and counsel patients.
Medical Diagnosis and Treatment is part of the UH Mānoa Summer Sessions program for high school students.
