Immerse Pre college Medicine Summer Program welcomes teens, ages 16-18- to a summer school where they can get in-depth insight into both the theory and practice of Medicine in Cambridge University.
What’s Going On in The Body We Reside? Don’t Be Patient This Summer
In our bodies, there is a huge conversation between 37 trillion cells. What are they talking about? What’s the rhythm of life with 3 billion heartbeats in a lifetime? Do our neurons tell us lies when optical, or auditory illusions occur? These questions and more will be answered in Medicine Summer School.
The Immerse Education Medicine Summer Program offers students insight into a discipline that you typically do not encounter during high school and yet remains one of the most popular and competitive career paths in the world.
During the two week program, you will explore a broad range of medical concepts and then apply your knowledge in a series of practicals.
Expert tutors from world-leading universities teach you how to suture, measure blood pressure and perform dissections, and talk you through the variety of career options open to a graduate in Medicine.
Don’t be patient this summer.
Why It is a Great Choice
Founded in 1209, the University of Cambridge is the fourth-oldest university in the world and internationally renowned for its academic excellence, its beautiful college architecture and its prestigious and rich history. Are you ready to experience life as a Cambridge University student this summer? All participants will be allocated to a college before arriving, based on their dates and subject choice. All colleges are central, historical, and have their own culture and character.
In small class sizes, you will be guided by expert tutors who have honed their expertise through teaching undergraduate students at world-class universities, including the universities of Cambridge, Oxford, and Harvard.
You will explore novel concepts as in sample topics, mentioned below and share ideas in small groups of like-minded and ambitious peers from around the world.
**Medical Research: “From Bench To Bedside”: **The Nobel Prize in Medicine recognises some of the world’s most important scientific breakthroughs to have revolutionised patient care and our understanding of life. But how are these discoveries made, and more importantly who makes them? You will revisit the principles of the scientific method, delve into the various stages of medical research and the growing necessity for interdisciplinary approaches.
**Cardiovascular And Respiratory Physiology: “Rhythm of Life”: **Tireless breathing keeps our blood oxygenated, while 3 billion heartbeats a lifetime transport it around the body. You will probe scientific questions and consider current and emerging therapies to fight cardiovascular and respiratory diseases. You will also develop a deeper understanding of the roles of CPR and AED in the emergency treatment of heart attacks and address questions such as: ‘Why do some people get mountain sickness?’, ‘Is snoring bad for you?’ and ‘What does an asthma inhaler do?’
Neuroscience And Neuropsychology: “I Think, Therefore I Am”: You will be given an overview of the basic microanatomy and physiology of neurons, analyse how these cells produce electrical signals (action potentials) and discuss how the 37 trillion cells of your body can communicate and coordinate with one another. You'll explore the power of the placebo effect, and challenge preconceived notions using a variety of optical, auditory and tactile sensory illusions.
**Science Conference: **Partake in a mini-science conference where you'll present a research topic assigned earlier in the week. You will be encouraged to view each other’s work critically, ask follow-up questions and engage with the subject matter.
Your summer school includes experiencing living in actual student accommodation in historic Cambridge University colleges. You will spend 13 nights in a central college of the University of Cambridge. All rooms are single occupancy with shared bathroom facilities, typically at a one bathroom ratio per four participants. Some ensuite facilities are available, with priority given to participants with additional needs. Where bathroom facilities are shared, participants are accommodated by gender on separate corridors.
Your meals (breakfast and dinner) at Formal Hall
As an Immerse student, you will also experience formal dinner three times during your stay – once per week in Cambridge, as well as in an Oxford University college on the excursion day. Formal hall is truly a memorable occasion, so remember to bring some smart clothes!
Outside of lessons, we are proud to offer a busy and diverse social program to help you get the most out of your time in Cambridge. This includes activities such as
There are also two excursions during the program, one day trip to visit Oxford and its constituent colleges, as well as an optional day out in London, seeing the city’s most famous landmarks as well as some free time for shopping. Those who choose not to travel to London are invited to afternoon tea in Cambridge. Activities and excursions are run by our team of friendly mentors – whose main job is to maximize your enjoyment.
Get to Cambridge University
Participants should arrive between 2 pm and 4 pm on the first Sunday of the program. Our team will be ready and waiting to welcome you, register you, and show you to your accommodation. If you are arriving at London Heathrow Airport, we are able to offer a shared airport transfer service. This is a chaperoned service departing from London Heathrow Airport Terminal 3 and traveling directly to the colleges in Cambridge/Oxford. The transfers depart at 11:00, 14:00 and 17:00 on the Sunday of arrivals. On the final Saturday of the program, the transfers to London Heathrow Airport depart at 07:00 and 12:00. Specific details, such as contact numbers, are shared with participants nearer the time of the program. If you are arriving at another airport, or by alternative means, further details about arrivals and departures are shared in your Participant Information Pack, sent with your confirmation of enrollment.
