Rural high school students already eyeing a career in medicine can get an early glimpse into the field by attending the Rural High School Medical Summer Camp hosted by East Tennessee State University’s Quillen College of Medicine.

The camp is geared toward rising juniors and seniors or recent graduates of high schools in rural areas who want to become a physician or in a related health career. The camp will be held June 7-12 and will include information on the various health sciences fields for which there are programs at ETSU, as well as field trips and hands-on lectures.

Participants will reside on campus in a residence hall during the weeklong camp. Tuition for the summer program is $225, which includes room, meals, supplies, extracurricular activities and transportation.

Space is limited to just 24 spots. The deadline for applications is March 15.
