From the director:
This engaged learning course will challenge you to learn from your own experiences. Through a structured (oral and written) process of participation, observation, and reflection, you’ll develop medicine-relevant skills, learn to effectively engage patients and work in teams, gain confidence as a producer of knowledge, increase your self-reliance as an active learner, and exercise critical-thinking skills.
In addition, this program will help you prepare to apply to competitive colleges and premedical programs.
The director will provide all readings online.
