2023 FSMA Update
After careful consideration, we have decided to put the FACES Summer Medical Academy on hiatus this summer (2023) in order to make some important updates to the curriculum and structure of the program. We remain committed to providing the best possible experience for the young people in our programs and to equip them with timely and relevant skills for the current health career landscape. Don’t worry, we’ll be back better than ever in Summer 2024!
To stay up-to-date on next year’s program, sign up for our newsletter here and check our social media for more announcements.
FSMA gives high school students ages 15+ in-depth, hands-on opportunities to explore their interests in health, clinical skills, and the art of medicine. Whether you’re set on a medical career, or still exploring your options, the FSMA program will expose you to new ideas, mentors, and other teens who have similar interests. If spending the summer learning how to save lives, respond to crisis situations, explore potential diagnosis and treatment plans for a patient, and meeting professionals in the field sound exciting to you, we highly recommend the FSMA program.
This year our curriculum includes earning professional certifications to respond to crisis situations and a week-long Medical Mystery in learning the process of how to diagnosis a patient. Our trainers and presenters are from diverse health professions.
FSMA welcomes students who are:
- Motivated and responsible.
- 15 years or older by the start of the program.
- Genuinely interested in learning about a career in healthcare.
- Excited to participate fully in a unique learning experience.
I would recommend FACES Summer Medical Academy to a friend because…
“You get to experience a glimpse into real healthcare work and the people you interact with (students, group leaders, guest speakers) are all very knowledgeable and passionate about medicine.” -FSMA Student, Block 1, 2, and 3
“You get to interact with patients, specialists, and more as you will gain critical skills you need in the medical field. Also if you do not know what you specifically want to do in the medical field you get to learn about a variety of careers.” -FSMA Student, Block 2
“You can really expose yourself to how things are done in the medical field while meeting active health professionals. You can ask questions and explore different fields you might be interested in.” -FSMA Student, Blocks 2 and 3
