Real Doctors. Real Patients. Real Medicine.
Traditionally, clinical apprenticeships include observing a healthcare professional in their daily work – interacting with patients and colleagues, applying their specialized knowledge, and reflecting on the rewards and challenges of their profession. HEAL has created an innovative way for college/university pre-health students to acquire invaluable clinical exposure through their problem-based seminars conducted in a safe and accessible online environment. Our pre-health community members have the opportunity to learn beyond passive observation of a single interaction in a single medical specialty, and dig into the reality of physician-patient clinical work, from the first patient meeting through diagnosis and treatment. HEAL students learn like medical students do, guided by medical preceptors through interactive observation and problem solving, tracking cases from symptoms to differential diagnosis to clinical outcome, in an expansive array of medical specialties.
