Want to save lives one person at a time?

In this program, you’ll be presented with ill patients and be expected to diagnose the problem, outline a treatment plan, and provide a prognosis. Hands-on lab work will provide you with a look inside your “patients,” as will activities such as dissections, abdomen palpations, full patient workups, and much more. 

Some internists choose “subspecialties.” One of the most popular? Cardiology – the prevention, diagnosis, and management of cardiovascular diseases.

Learn how to perform triple bypass surgery, implant a pacemaker, or repair a defective heart valve in this groundbreaking program covers not only heart surgery, but an array of surgical and non-surgical interventions used in internal medicine. 

**NEW** for 2022!

Allergies and asthma, blood diseases, endocrine disorders, infectious disease and even sleep disorders all are a part of the fascinating world of internal medicine!

Dr. Jesse Moreira

Dr. Jesse Moreira is a biomedical research scientist at Boston University School of Medicine working to understand the role of mitochondrial dysfunction in heart failure. Dr. Moreira grew up in Massachusetts, and has remained here for his academic training as well. He completed his Masters of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees in Human Physiology at Boston University, where his work encompassed broad topics in physiology including the integrated role of the brain, kidneys, and vasculature in the regulation of blood pressure, which he has published several peer-reviewed articles on as the lead author. He has always had a passion for teaching complex concepts in biology, and has experience teaching neuroscience, human anatomy, and cardiovascular and pulmonary physiology to undergraduate, graduate, and professional students. When not in the lab studying heart disease, you can find him coaching soccer, going for runs, and reading a good book.
