Med Kids

The Med Kids summer program is a three day exploration into today's pediatric healthcare professions for currently enrolled middle school students in grades 6, 7 and 8. The participants will have the opportunity to interact with healthcare professionals and learn about the medical field through speakers/presentations, hands on simulations and a tour of the CDC. 

Participants will not shadow any clinical staff, but will be supervised by Children's employees. Interested students must commit to all three days during their selected session and can only apply to, and participate in, one session at one campus, one time. 

Transportation to and from the CDC will be provided. Lunch is not provided.
