AIM-Higher Advanced Day Camp

The Achieve in Medicine (AIM)-Higher day camp is designed for graduates of the AIM-High day camp offered by Nova Southeastern University's Dr. Kiran C. Patel College of Osteopathic Medicine. This immersive summer day camp offers participants an opportunity to gain an even deeper knowledge on what it means to provide compassionate care to others. 

The focus for AIM-Higher 2024 is "the human side of medicine." Participants will participate in hands-on experiences and interact with NSU faculty, simulated patients, and medical students to gain an understanding of how cultural, economic, and family issues impact patient care. They will learn how empathy and communication, in concert with knowledge and expertise, reinforces the provision of quality patient care. Participants will also have the opportunity to work on a research project.
