This program is perfect for students who are interested in expanding their understanding of anatomy. They will be learning about the anatomy of the human body more extensively than in our one-week program. They will learn about the different systems of the human body which may include nervous, skeletal, circulatory, muscular, digestive, lymphatic, and endocrine.
Students will learn surgical knot tying techniques. They will learn through case studies, hands-on dissections, field trips and classroom lectures. During the three weeks, students will conduct hands-on research and will present their research project to their peers.
This is a competitive admissions summer research program designed for teens.
Closed to New Participants
In past years, students attending the Anatomy & Surgical Research summer program have visited the Ether Dome where they toured the historical medical center, Russell Museum – Mass General Hospital where they saw modern medical and surgical technology in action, and the Women’s Simulation Center where they saw a mock-surgery.
Students will go to the critically-acclaimed Body Worlds and the Cycle of Life exhibit at Boston’s Museum of Science. The theme of the Body Worlds exhibitions changes every few years. They are the world’s most popular touring attraction, having been seen by 47 million people globally. This expansive 10,000 square foot exhibition has only two US stops before moving on to Canada and various European cities. Students will also be able to see the world-famous Museum of Science on their visit.

Student Comments (Continued)
The program and teacher were both amazing. I’ve learned so much and I am so lucky to have had this experience. The trips and surgeries/dissections were everything I hoped for and more and having Megan as a teacher just made it that much better. Megan is one of the best people I’ve ever met, her bright personality and positive attitude filled the room with good vibes every single day.’
