High School Medical Camp
2021 Rural High School Medical Camp
Tuesday, June 8th, 2021 or Tuesday, June 15th, 2021
In an effort to increase the number of primary care physicians who choose to practice in rural areas, the Department of Family Medicine has sought to have a greater influence upon high school students during a period which is critical to their career determinations. Rural high school students eyeing a career in medicine and the health sciences can get an early glimpse into the field by entering the annual Rural High School Medical Camp, hosted by the Quillen College of Medicine. The camp encourages the students to consider a career that previously may have appeared out of reach and gives them a set of experiences to guide them for preparation for entering medical school.
The program is organized around a single day summer camp for up to 30 rural high school students - must be a rising junior, senior or recent graduate. Students will be introduced to disciplines of medicine with hands on experience, learn about admissions to both East Tennessee State University and the Quillen College of Medicine, and provided with a brief tour of both campuses.
This year’s programs will include lectures and some hands on experiences. Some of
the most popular programs have included Gross Anatomy, Human Simulation Lab and Public
