Description

MedLink is a mentorship program for high school sophomores. We focus on science education and personal development by supporting one-on-one relationships between high school students and medical students.  Together they explore the path from high school to a career in health care and engage in activities like learning to take vital signs, participating in a simulated trauma resuscitation, and investigating an infectious outbreak.
