The BioScience Program at Shattuck-St. Mary's Schoohas been specifically designed for students in grades 9 - 12 who have a keen interest in science and plan to pursue careers in biomedical engineering, research or medicine. The primary objective of the Program is to privide these students with opportunities that can shape, enrich and inform the decisions they make about their career paths. There are multiple ways of engaging in the BioScience Program: participation in a BioScience summer camp, participation in a BioScience Scholars' Weekend or enrollment as a full-time student at Shattuck-St. Mary's School (SSM). Information about the BioScience Summer Camp or Scholars' Weekends can be found at www.ssmbioscience.org. As an SSM enrollee, a student in the BioScience Program enroll in a year-long BioScience course, participate in activities after school on Mon - Thur afternoons, and travel off-campus twice a month for day-long field trips. Each term, the BioScience course focuses on Bioethics, Public Health, Medical Device Design or the anatomy and physiology of one organ system in the human body. During the after-school sessions, students typically work on biomedical device projects, complete organ dissections, learn minor medical procedures (suturing...), and participate in discussions of scientific journal articles. The off-campus field trips include attendance at medical or engineering conferences, as well as visits to research laboratories and hospitals. The BioScience Program also has a regular schedule of speakers, including physicians, biomedical engineers, researchers, and other professionals involved in a healthcare-related field.
