High School Programs
Academic Immersion: Introduction to Medicine
BU Introduction to Careers in Medicine
- BU Introduction to Careers in Medicine
- BU-ICM is an innovative educational program with the aim of sparking interest among high-school students in careers in medicine. It is a non-credit pre-medical program that combines classroom work in the sciences with experiential, hands-on learning activities for high school students. The program is offered through the Department of Medical Sciences and Education (MSE) at BUSM. It is an 8-week course that takes place once a week (Sundays, 10 am – 2 pm) in the spring. The format consists of basic science-themed classes for the first half of the course, with more clinically-based themes in the second half. For each session, a lecture on a given topic is presented followed by lunch, and then a hands-on type of activity takes place in the afternoon related to the topic of the morning. Our long-term goal is to help guide the path of future physicians and health care workers. For more information see the 2018 Flyer 2018
