This academic camp at UC Berkeley is the perfect gateway to Middle School Medicine for 12 and 13 years olds.
Gain hands-on skills in emergency medicine and hear first-hand about jobs in the field of healthcare.
This program provides middle school students interested in pursuing medicine with real hands-on experience where they can build a set of medical skills at an early age. Imagine being able to set a splint, stop a bleed, and perform CPR as a middle school student! Students will learn medical techniques through age-appropriate simulations and guided lessons. In addition, they’ll work with small groups to research a patient’s history and symptoms, create a diagnosis based on findings, and develop a treatment plan.
Students may visit Stantec, one of the world’s top-tier design engineering firms. At Mission Bay, Stantec is helping the University of California, San Francisco transform cancer care. In Golden Gate Park, they partnered to design the California Academy of Sciences, one of the world’s greenest museums. All students visit a simulation center for hands-on practice in stitching, suturing, intubation, and BLS skills led by leading medical trainers. Past visits have included the Yale Center for Medical Simulation, the UCSF Kanbar Simulation Center, STRATUS Center (affiliated with Harvard Medical School) and UC San Diego’s SIM Center. Visits provide first-hand observations of the high-pressure/ life-saving world of an emergency room.
Since we are based in Berkeley, San Francisco and Silicon Valley are also at our doorstep. We will explore the world-class resources of the entire region to expose you to one of the most innovative and exciting areas in the entire world. Additionally, we’ll enjoy the fun attractions in the vicinity. All excursions are fully supervised by Summer Springboard staff.

Just like a college student at UC Berkeley, students share a dorm room with roommates and use a common bathroom. Floors are gender-segregated and rooms contain an extra-long twin size bed, desks, drawers, mirror and a closet. Your Resident Advisor (RA) will live on your hall to create a community, provide support, plan activities and help you get the most out of your stay at Berkeley. Other members of the Summer Springboard staff also live on campus and are available to support students and tackle emergencies, 24 hours a day.
All dormitories have 24-hour security and use electronic keys to enter each building and dorm room. Cal security is on 24-hour patrol and available to any student that may need assistance during the Berkeley summer program for high school students.
Your dormitory is part of a complex of buildings around a courtyard. Each building has laundry facilities, lounges and high speed wireless internet throughout. The university is committed to providing a healthy, smoke-free environment for students, faculty and staff.
