  • Our patented “Step into the shoes of an MD” skill and patient case workshops

  • Didactic discussions with medical doctors

  • Simulation Lab for medical procedures

  • Hands on training of medical techniques/procedures including: EKG, Suturing, CPR, Splinting and taking Vitals

Hands-On Experience In a Variety of Health Care Settings

“The best part of the experience was the opportunity to see what exactly the life of someone in the medical field looks like. I really liked talking to Dr. Jocelyn because she gave us great insight and I felt like it helped me realize the difficulties and the rewards of entering the medical field.” – MISA Student

Networking Opportunities

“The combination of exposure to the skills/activities AND the opportunity to interact with folks further along the path (premeds, med students, doctors). This made it all VERY tangible.” – MISA Parent
