Whether you’re looking for a one-week follow-up to Introduction to Surgery or a stand-alone program, Reconstructive Surgery is for every student. For those looking to continue their surgical education following Introduction to Surgery, this is the perfect option. Tap Van Geel, who holds an MD, will cover topics that students who took Intro to Surgery haven’t already seen. However, for students who have not yet taken a surgical program, this material is still introductory and doesn’t require a prerequisite course.
Would you like to give someone a second chance at a normal life? This is what plastic and reconstructive surgeons do every day. From infants born with a cleft palate and lip, to survivors of car accidents suffering severe craniofacial trauma, to burn victims with disfiguring scars, reconstructive surgeons make the transformations that can allow individuals to carry on with everyday life. Reconstructive surgeons find themselves at the interface of other surgical specialties. They may address disfigurements left by cancer treatment or reduce scars left by surgical procedures. Appearance augmentation procedures such as liposuction, face lifts, and body contouring also fall under the purview of cosmetic surgeons.
This one-week summer program is designed for teens interested in pre-med.
Last year, students visited 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. We’re planning to once again take a field trip to the world famous Museum of Science in 2020!
