Advancing Youth in Medical Education

Summer Learning Experience Designed by Med Students 

Advancing Youth in Medical Education (AYiME) is a summer learning experience designed by medical students to help high school students get a glimpse of what medical school is really like. The program is specifically designed for those interested in biology and physical sciences.

Free 5-Week Program

The program runs on five mainly consecutive Saturdays at the University of Utah School of Medicine. Each session is a mix of lecture and labs taught by current medical students. The teaching will focus on basic anatomy, physiology, disease process, pharmacology, and disease prevention. Many diseases and medications familiar to medical professionals will be investigated. The program culminates in a celebratory session during which participants make group presentations to family and friends.

The program is free, but seats are limited. This is a great way for you to explore whether or not medicine could be a career choice. This program can be influential on your resume for college applications and high school credit is available in some schools and districts.
