OSU-CHS will take medical school summer camps for high school students to four cities across the state beginning Tuesday, June 7.

Operation Orange will begin at OSU in Stillwater on June 7 and June 14 and travel to Cameron University in Lawton on June 9, Southwestern Oklahoma State University in Weatherford on June 10 and Sequoyah High School in Tahlequah on June 17.

OSU-CHS medical students will guide participants through hands-on activities to provide a taste of the medical school experience. Participants will get a chance to study the anatomy of a human brain, heart and lungs, learn to insert breathing tubes in a simulated patient, listen to a simulation of a patient’s heart and lungs and learn more about career opportunities in the health care field.
