“The MedEx Academy is more than a program… it is a relationship” – Al Squire
MedEx Academy equips high school seniors and college undergraduates to make more informed career decisions and prepare for advance training in health care. Working in concert with academic institutions, the MedEx Academy will enhance student career decision-making through “real life” experiences.
Students who participate in the program will be offered the opportunity to apply for college scholarships based on merit. They will also be eligible to receive academic credit through our academic partnerships for each Tier level of student participation. Students will receive financial assistance for their participation during the summer program which will provide monetary support to minimize potential economic barriers. Funds will also be made available on an as needed basis for academic development purposes that will help individual students with tutoring needs, test prep such as the SAT or MCATS entry exam, acquisition of materials and equipment, and access to other resources.
Year- long involvement is another goal of the Medical Experience Academy. Students will have opportunities for ongoing involvement that will include activities such as community service, mentoring and ambassadorships.
