The Cure - Pathway 2 - High School Summer Adventures - STEP #5


As Olivia and Logan approach the end of their school year, they are thinking about summertime activities helping them explore more into the field of medical research, service, or possibly medical product development or pharmaceuticals.   
     After learning that the paths to becoming a medical doctor, nurse, or pharmacist are clearly defined by the colleges and post graduate schools, Olivia and Logan decide to find out more. They are aware that the Medical and Pharmaceutical professions are demanding and challenging.

Live-Away Program

Logan is considering a “live-away” summer program suggested by his mentor at science club. He was excited to find out they offer summer STEM-based Medical & Healthcare programs at 9 locations, coast to coast. Each offering an in depth hands-on experience. He'd get to live in a college dormitory environment and participate in a curriculum offering real clinical experiences.


In this step,

  • Research The National Student Leadership Conference (“NSLC”)

  • Do you think experiencing a program like this would benefit Logan on his career pathway?

  • Would you want to be part such a program? Explain why or why not.
