Our Mission

To inspire critical thinking, scientific reasoning and essential health literacy in high school students through high-impact learning in the dynamic world of medicine, combining: classroom didactics, high-touch role modeling and live action problem solving of realistically simulated medical emergencies.

People. Population. Time. Prolonging. Living. Dying. Holding. Hugging. Curing. Caring. Watching. Helping. Me.

These are just some of the words that run through my head when someone, a passerby, a friend, or a relative mentions medicine in a conversation.

Yes, I want to be a doctor. And it’s all thanks to one teacher, one class, four days a week.
