First Steps Into The Medical Field

Every summer, AYP hosts Medical based camps where students can grow their passions for their future endeavors in nursing, pharmacy, neuroscience, and so much more!

Auburn Youth Programs is passionate about helping students of all ages grow their passions, develop skills, and become leaders. We are eager to bringing these students back to Auburn’s campus this summer so they can explore their interests in Auburn University’s beautiful facilities alongside professionals in their desired fields. Registration is NOW OPEN for these medical camps:

Discovery MedCamp:

Hosted by the Southeast Alabama AHEC and led by the AU Interprofessional Education (IPE) faculty team, campers will investigate nine different health care, career options: Osteopathic Medicine, Nursing, Social Work, Speech & Audiology, Pharmacy, Dietetics, Physical Therapy, Occupational Therapy, & Athletic Training. Campers will also tour the labs and go behind the scenes at East Alabama Medical Center for an up-close look at the real world of medicine.

Pharmacy Camp:

The Harrison School of Pharmacy, in partnership with Auburn Youth Programs, invites you to join us this summer for Pharmacy Camp. This unique opportunity is for rising high school 11th and 12th grade students as well as rising college freshmen who are interested in pharmacy. This hands-on experience will allow campers to explore the profession through various learning experiences such as skills and compounding labs, while also exposing you to the various career options through visits to local pharmacies and healthcare facilities.

Nursing Camp:

Facilitated by Auburn University School of Nursing (AUSON) and Auburn Youth Programs, this engaging one-week summer program is available for high school students interested in careers in nursing. Camp participants “learn by doing” and practice technical skills as they rotate through interactive learning stations led by undergraduate nursing students in the school’s labs and simulation center.

Emergency Medical Responder Camp:

For anyone interested in a field of emergency medicine, or in serving on the response team as a non-EMS responder in the government, corporate, law enforcement, or corrections field, the Emergency Medical Response course provides invaluable skills and knowledge to help responders appropriately help at the scene of an emergency. Campers will learn how to take vitals, proper lifting and moving skills, in addition to treatment for a variety of common emergencies.

AU Brain Camp:

High school students will have the opportunity of a lifetime this summer when the Department of Psychology in the College of Liberal Arts hosts their annual Auburn University Brain Camp. AU Brain Camp is a fun, interactive camp for juniors and seniors in high school, or about to enter their freshman year of college, to get hands-on experience using advanced technology and to learn from distinguished professors in the field of neuroscience.
