Summer Pre-Med Simulation Workshop

Add a cutting edge experience to your medical school application and gain clinical skills through advanced, hands-on, high-fidelity medical simulation


The SONHS Summer Pre-Med Workshop links in-depth lectures on the workings of the human body, disease, and pharmacology with exciting activities in the Simulation Hospital. Students put theory into practice, learning on high-fidelity manikins how to suture wounds, evaluate an EKG, start an IV, intubate, administer adult and infant CPR, assess patients for stroke, and much more. As one participant from the inaugural 2019 class said, "This program gave me a first-hand, immersive experience that was genuinely unforgettable!” For more information, call 305-284-4680.
