The goal of the Medical Science Academy is to present a 28-week medical orientation program for 12th-grade honor students selected from Camden, Gloucester, and Burlington County high schools. Students will meet Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM weekly.


The Program will blend as many didactic experiences and active participatory experiences as possible (non-patient contact). The Program will offer integrated and thematically organized presentations by guest speakers representing the medical and health care professions. Presenters will address issues such as responsibilities to themselves, their patients, their institutions and their communities: as well as provide current information relevant to their work.

The Program will highlight osteopathic medicine; its principles and its contributions to wellness.
