The partnership between HUB and Oakland University’s William Beaumont School of Medicine has been very beneficial for HUB students who are curious about the field of medicine.
This summer, over 45 HUB students signed up to be a part of the club. Unfortunately, there were only 30 spots available. Dr.Taylor and Ms. Gatlin discussed which students would be chosen based on a combination of various factors including a student’s character and behavior,commitment to HUB, and their academic progress. Once students were chosen, they met every Tuesday with Dr. Cortes.
The students worked with Dr. Cortes, an Assistant Professor in the Department of Biomedical Sciences teaching Immunology to M1-M2 students at OU. Dr. Cortes, assisted by OU Med Students, taught HUB students about human anatomy by using life-sized models. Students then worked together on teams to create a project which they presented prior to going on a field trip. On Tuesday, July 31st, students were able to visit the Troy Moceri Learning Center for some hands-on simulations and modules. This, and previous experiences with the Beaumont Future Medical Scholars Club at HUB, further encouraged many students into continuing their exploration of the medical field.
