Posted: Updated:

It's a program only available to a select group of high school students from across Arizona - The Summer Institute on Medical Ignorance. The University of Arizona College of Medicine program gives students a taste of what it's like to work in the medical and science research fields.

The program has been offered at the U of A for 20 years. Some of the participants have gone on to pursue careers in medicine, nursing, pharmacy, and veterinary medicine. The program is also offered to medical students.
