Doctor for a Day provides high school students with the opportunity to explore the world of internal medicine, the specialty dedicated to the diagnosis and treatment of disease in adults.
Students spend the day learning from physicians who perform transplants, diagnose heart conditions, treat sepsis and work in other subspecialties. The lectures and demonstrations are designed to promote active learning. At day's end, participants work with a faculty member to solve a medical mystery. Students also have the opportunity to learn about careers in medicine, including the process of gaining admission to medical school.
