About this Concentration

Campus: Wellesley College Grades: 10-12

Under the guidance of medical experts, look through the lens of a third-year med school student and gain clinical skills — all while wrestling with case studies and simulated patient encounters. Rotate through specialties like internal medicine, oncology, pediatrics, emergency medicine, obstetrics, and surgery.

Learn the importance of avoiding snap judgments, contending with uncertainty, communicating effectively and humanely, and working as an effective team to deliver quality care to your patients.

In EXPLO Medical Rotations, get access to clinical training experiences that are usually reserved only for professionals and medical students, network with doctors in a variety of medical careers and practice in a state-of-the-art medical simulation lab, and begin to see the world differently while they glean the foundational skills that medical doctors must use each day.
