Health Sciences Summer Camps
Inspiring Future Health Leaders
Each year, Dell Med offers several summer day camps for middle and high school students in Central Texas. Participants enjoy hands-on science experiments, interact with health professionals from various fields, spend time with outstanding camp counselors — and much more! Providing these experiences is just one way the Dell Med team encourages members of the local community to pursue careers that contribute to health transformation.
About the Camps
In the same simulation labs where medical and nursing students train, camp participants learn basic clinical skills such as administering IVs, performing intubations, drawing blood and taking vital signs. Students also engage in a range of laboratory science, discover how technology can aid modern medicine and earn First Aid or CPR/AED certification. Plus, they have ample time for recreation at UT Austin in the Texas Union and Gregory Gym.
