High School Programs

Students take college courses for credit, attend tutorials and seminars, shadow physicians and other health care professionals and participate in field trips to rural medical facilities. We are planning for an in-person program where students live on The University of Alabama campus for five weeks from May 23 to June 29, 2021, but we may have to change to a virtual platform to ensure the health and safety of the students, professors, and staff.
