Curious about what it's like to attend The Academies? Our Academies Experience packet gives an inside look into how a week at the Academies will launch you to new heights.
The Summer Pre-med Academy is a week-long course designed to expose high school students to medicine and the healthcare field in the environment of a collegiate campus. With comprehensive curriculum concentrated in five days, at SPMA students get students hands-on learning experience through labs and behind-the-scenes looks at the operations of a hospital, hear from prominent speakers in the field, and get a taste of what it's like to study pre-medicine at a university like Harvard. Throughout the week, students will also learn business fundamentals and how they apply within the medical field, which they will apply in their capstone project in which they build a functional model of their own clinic
At SPMA, students are immersed in the experience of what it’s like to be a student and professional in the medical field. Students learn concepts including organic chemistry, preview the MCAT, and get a chance for one-on-one mentorship from Harvard students and instructors. They also work on labs and simulations at local museums and hospitals and work collaboratively to design their own medical clinic. At SPMA, we strive to demonstrate the relationship between medicine and the rest of the world, highlighting speakers with unusual paths to and through medicine. We aim to equip students with valuable hands-on experience so they will be ready to enter and succeed in the medical world.
