Decision Medicine is a two-week program designed to introduce students to the field of medicine through personal mentoring opportunities and site visits with behind-the-scenes access to some of our regional hospitals, clinics and public health centers.
Participants will be challenged with real-world decisions as they explore the many facets of a career as a physician. The program is limited to a small group of 24 participants each year for maximum impact.
Throughout the program, students will work with various team configurations, including a one-on-one mentoring opportunity with a local physician in their personal practice. Additionally, participants will visit several local hospitals and surgery centers, including the famous UC Davis School of Medicine in Sacramento, the new Kaiser Permanente Hospital in Modesto, and several specialized hospitals in San Francisco, to meet and interact with physicians conducting fascinating research in the areas of organ transplantation, brain surgery and other cutting-edge facets of medicine.
The tentative schedule for Decision Medicine is July 8 to 22.
This program is FREE and available for current 10th- and 11th-grade students. Applications are only accepted online.
The deadline for consideration is April 22. For more information or to submit an application, visit www.decisionmedicine.com.
