Med-Xtravaganza brings high school students to medical school
Oklahoma State University College of Osteopathic Medicine will host Med-Xtravaganza for high school students on Friday, Dec. 5 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the OSU Center for Health Sciences.
“Med-X is an opportunity for students to visit our campus and experience medical school,” said Maghin Abernathy, director of recruitment at OSU-COM. “They will also learn what to do while in high school to prepare for medical school.”
Participants will have the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities, including testing suturing skills, listening to a simulation of the heart and lungs, learning to perform intubations and studying human anatomy.
Students may also tour the OSU-CHS campus, interact with OSU medical students and learn more about the admissions process. Lunch will be provided.
