FACES SUMMER MEDICAL ACADEMY (FSMA)
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 looking at organs in an anatomy lab, learning how to suture, debating medical ethics, exploring potential diagnosis and treatment plans for a patient, and meeting professionals in the field sounds exciting to you, we highly recommend the FSMA program.
Our curriculum includes workshops on medical science, mental health, and public health- with information about a variety of career paths in the medical field. Our presenters include medical students, social workers, doctors, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, residents, and professors- each with a keen interest in pursuing the next generation of health care providers.
“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
