GEORGETOWN SUMMER MEDICAL INSTITUTE was a weeklong program at Georgetown University that provided an introduction to several different aspects of medicine, along with the experience of living in dorms and attending classes and labs with different high school students from all around the country. I got to work with a patient simulator, learn how to prepare for medical school, hear lectures given by Georgetown professors, talk to medical students about their experiences, study at the human cadaver lab, travel to the Shock Trauma Center, and so much more.
