Program Overview

Examine a career in medicine.

At the NSLC on Medicine & Health Care, assume the role of a physician as you practice surgical skills, collaborate with your medical team to diagnose patients, and debate public health issues with your peers.

I will never forget the wonderful memories I experienced with my new friends. I loved everything about the program and learned a lot more about medicine.
