For rising juniors and seniors, Academic Immersion: Introduction to Medicine is an intensive three-week residential premedical program. It is offered in partnership with the Department of Medical Sciences & Education at the BU School of Medicine and BU’s College of Health & Rehabilitation Sciences: Sargent College. AIM’s premedical track will provide you with a broad introduction to the field of medicine, combining coursework in related sciences with experiential learning activities and explorations of the various career possibilities that exist within the field. In the mornings, you will attend seminars led by BU instructors that focus on three core topics: anatomy and physiology, infectious diseases, and contemporary issues in medicine. In the afternoons, you will engage in hands-on learning activities that introduce you to what medical students experience in the early phase of their education, including: Simulation labs that teach you how to conduct physical exams and take vital signs Surgical activities, including suturing, surgical knots, and biopsies Laboratory investigations in BU School of Medicine and Sargent College labs Workshops led by different medical professionals, such as genetic counselors or radiologists Meetings with medical students and graduate students who will share their postgraduate experiences in the sciences with you All activities are led by medical faculty on staff at BU’s School of Medicine or faculty and graduate students from BU’s Charles River Campus. The educational goals of the program are to: 1) deepen your understanding of the academic science behind medicine; 2) provide you with opportunities to engage in some of the experiential learning activities in which graduate medical students participate; and 3) introduce the range of professional possibilities that exist within the medical field. There are also plenty of social opportunities to make sure everyone becomes familiar with the BU campus, Boston—and each other! You can plan your own free time or participate in weekend group activities, or even mix it up and join students in our other programs for a variety of scheduled events.
