Want to learn about pediatrics and neonatology?  This is the program for you!

You’ll learn how to assess a newborn’s vital signs, explore common childhood diseases such as measles and mumps, identify neurological disorders, and examine the differences between pediatric medicine and neonatology.

This program will provide a fast-paced, hands-on glimpse into what it’s like to be a pediatrician. Students will gain insight into childhood diseases and contagion, bloodwork, and mental disorders of childhood diagnosis and treatments.

Hands-on activities will include infant CPR and AED training on baby CPR mannequins. Additionally, students will practice patient care on an infant simulator doll, including IV injection, umbilical cord procedures, catheterization, nasal and oral intubation, and more! Students will also have the opportunity to deliver a baby using our birthing simulator, which contains the mother and newborn, along with all of the details you’d see in a real birth such as the umbilical cord and amniotic fluid!

This three-week summer program is designed for teens interested in pre-med.

An elite subsection of Pediatrics? Neonatology – the specialization that deals with complex health issues related to newborns. Neonatology often includes complications with pregnancy, premature birth, or birth defects. You’ve probably heard of the NICU, or the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, where premature babies gain the strength they need to go home. That’s just one part of what a Neonatologist is involved with.

Be prepared to practice tiny, baby-sized procedures with hands-on labs and studies. As doctors always say, kids aren’t just little adults. Pediatrics and Neonatology require an entirely specific skillset. If you’ve taken another one of our medical programs before, get ready for something new!

*2022 Student Comments

‘One of the best teachers I have ever had. It was very clear how much he cared about medicine and his style of teaching was super interesting and definitely inspired me to pursue medicine.’

‘I liked how interactive the course was. We were always using our hands whilst doing something, which made things easier to identify through this process. Our teacher was super chill and it was fun to interact and get to know him.’

‘The program was really fun. The teacher was amazing. He made the class fun. The class had interesting things to do.’

This program was so interactive and lots of fun. Going into the program I was very nervous that it’d be just like school, but it was so much more enjoyable. It was very informative program with well built structure. ‘
