BU-Introduction to Careers in Medicine (BU-ICM)
- 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 & Education at Boston University School of Medicine. It is a 1-week course that takes place in the summer. For each session, a clinically-relevant topic with basic science background is presented in the morning; following lunch on campus, a hands-on type of activity takes place in the afternoon related to the topic of the morning. Topics include anatomy, physiology, infectious diseases, sports medicine, radiology, and surgery. Our long-term goal is to help guide the path of future physicians and health care workers.
