Introduction to Careers in Medicine (BU-ICM)


A pre-medical program that combines classroom work in the sciences with experiential, hands-on learning activities taught by distinguished clinical educators of Boston University School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center—featuring topics such as Anatomy, Physiology, Surgery, Sports Medicine, and Radiology.

Open to high-school students (grades 9-12) who would like to explore the field of medicine.


Due to the COVID pandemic, the program for the summer of 2020 had to be cancelled. For those students accepted  for the summer of 2020, we are able to offer a 1-week virtual program in the summer of 2021.

Our hope is to run the 1-week in-person program in the summer of 2022. Details (dates/tuition) to be determined.


Enrollment for summer 2022 is NOT open.

The following materials are required for application:

(1) On-line application
(2) Personal statement (1-page maximum)
(3) High-school transcript
(4) One letter of recommendation from a teacher

Personal statement, transcript, and letter should be submitted via e-mail to
