Description and Mission
MD Camp sponsored by the Area Health Education Center is an intensive, three-week summer camp that gives participants an experience in the rigors of medical school. It is open to Juniors, Seniors and recent high school graduates who are interested in pursuing careers in the health professions including biomedical research and who are considered an underrepresented minority or disadvantaged student in medicine.
Ultimately, MD Camp aims at increasing the number of physicians who are underrepresented in medicine and who elect to practice in underserved areas. Toward this end, the camp strives to inspire students to pursue a career in medicine by challenging them intellectually, facilitating their academic and social development, and increasing their awareness of the special needs of underserved populations.
