AHS Pre Med Program

医师,在美国众多的职业中,是莘莘学子梦寐以求的受人尊敬的高收入职业,因为救死扶伤,从而拥有了个众所周知的美称——白衣天使。它是一门神圣而崇高的职业,在美国拥有着极高的社会地位以及殷实的收入回报,但要在美国成为一名医师绝不是一件容易的事。如今,许许多多优秀学子想跻身于医学院的大门,千军万马挤独木桥,竞争的激烈可想而知。因此,AHS作为高中,特地为有望成为医学界精英的同学们提供了相当大学水平医学预科课程(Pre-Medicine),给准备学医的他们提供了良好的教育途径,并从中让同学们在医学活动和经验中更好的了解与确定自己未来的发展方向。

1 What is Pre-Med?

医学预科简介

医学预科(通常被称为医学预科)是美国和加拿大的学生在成为医学学生之前追求的教育轨道。它包括为学生进入医学院做准备的活动,如医学预科课程、志愿者活动、临床经验、研究和申请过 程。一些提供广泛准备的医学预科项目被称为“预备专业”,可以同时准备学生进入各种各样的第 一专业学位或研究生院项目,需要类似的先决条件(如医学,兽医,或药学学校)。

Pre-Medical (often referred to as pre-med) is an educational track that students in the United States and Canada pursue prior to becoming medical students. It involves activities that prepare students for medical schools, such as pre-med coursework, volunteer activities, clinical experience, research, and the application process. Some pre-med programs providing broad preparation are referred to as “pre-professional” and may simultaneously prepare students for entry into a variety of first professional degree or graduate school programs that require similar prerequisites (such as medical, veterinary, or pharmacy schools).

医学预科的优点

四年制的医学预科项目会以十二年级学生的实习而结束。十二年级学生每周会让学生们在医院经 历医药,手术室,医务室等多方面的实践。实习项目设有包括神经外科,放射科,病理学,肿瘤学, 法医学在内的35种不同种类的专业课。应届毕业生们在同医学专家们合作实践的过程中建立的联系经常会给AHS的学生们在以下机构拥有临床经验:韦斯顿克利夫兰医院,布劳沃德医疗体系, 纪念医疗体系,德尔雷医院,卡利达健康中心等等;这种经历往往会成为大学申请中的加分项目。 

现就读于哥伦比亚大学的海睿德学校毕业生安柏·斯维纳尔斯基说:“我一直以来都对科学十分感兴 趣;作为海睿德学校医学预科项目的一员,我得到了很多认识很多不同的医生和专业人员的机会, 看到了很多我可能会在医学院中预料的事情。我在海瑞学校期间参加了很多的活动,这些活动丰 富了我自己,扩宽了我的视野。“

The four-year Pre-Medical program culminates in a senior year internship when students experience the practice of medicine in real life. Seniors leave campus a few times per week to rotate through different aspects of medical practices throughout South Florida. Students experience the practice of medicine in hospitals, operating rooms, and doctors’ offices. There are 35 different specialties in the internship, such as neurosurgery, radiology, pathology, forensic science, and oncology. The connections our seniors make with practicing medical professionals are invaluable and often result in future medical school acceptances and jobs. AHS students have clinical visitation rights at the following institutions: Cleveland Clinic of Weston, Memorial Health Systems, Broward Health Systems, Delray Medical Hospital, Caridad Health Center (looks good on college applications).

Amber Swinarski, Columbia University (AHS alumni) "I have always been drawn to the sciences, and being in the Heritage Pre-Med Program gave me thechance to meet different doctors and specialists and see things that I might expect in Med School. I was involved in so many different things at Heritage, which made me a more interesting person and broadened my view of the world as I head to college." Taking Pre-Med in high school prepares students for medical classes in college. It also gives students medical experience and develops a strong work ethic.

 

3 AHS Pre Med Program

AHS的医学预科项目

AHS的医学预科提供多种项目,其中包括可给学生提供专业介绍的医学预科协会。此外, 学生们每年都要接受cpr急救和AED的使用以及“停止出血创伤”课程的培训。协会会议每 两周举行一次,会议议程将包括有关专门领域、医学趋势、研究和社区外展计划的嘉宾演 讲。而除了邀请演讲嘉宾以外,医学预科项目还参加了各种筹款活动,包括为儿童癌症患者举办的节日派对和“为了让布劳沃德健康更美好的一天”而举办的5K活动。每年,医学预科协会都会在布劳沃德健康萨拉基金会儿童医院为儿童癌症患者举办节日派对。学生们对社区的贡献是通过当地筹款活动上的数千美元可见的,而到目前为止,这已经允许他们在布劳沃德综合医院建立两个新的儿科游戏室。

The American Heritage Pre-Med offers programs including the Pre-Med Society in which students visit doctors who speak about their specialty. Also, students are trained every year in CPR-First Aid and AED use as well as the Stop the Bleed trauma course. Moreover, society meetings are held bi-weekly and agendas include guest speakers in specialized fields, trends in medicine, research, and community outreach programs. In addition to the guest speaker opportunities, the Pre-Med program takes part in various fundraisers including the holiday party for pediatric cancer patients and the 5K for a better day to benefit Broward health. Yearly, the Pre-Med Society hosts holiday parties for pediatric cancer patients at Broward Health Salah Foundation Children's Hospital. Students contribute to the community which is visible through the thousands of dollars raised through local fundraising events, which has so far allowed them to build two new pediatric playrooms at Broward General Hospital.

如前所述,医学预科协会每年为“美好的 一天”募捐5000英镑,这大大帮助了布劳沃德健康儿童医院。在过去的17年里,AHS的医学预科协会为布劳沃德健康儿童医院筹集了数十万美元,这正要感谢院长卡洛斯·普利多 博士的指导才使得这个筹款活动才有可能在医学预科学生的帮助下进行——他花了数月 时间来策划和运作这个筹款活动。美国传统医学预科项目参加的竞赛包括“HOSA” (Health Occupations Students of America)在美国教育部和ACTE的健康科学技术教育部 门的认可下,AHS的学生正通过HOSA在医学术语、病理生理学和运动医学等领域努力着 ,进行着全国范围内的竞争。

As previously mentioned, the Pre-Med Society raises money annually with the 5k for a better day which benefits the Children's Hospital at Broward Health. For the past 17 years, American Heritage’s Pre-Med Society has accumulated hundreds of thousands of dollars to benefit the Children's Hospital at Broward Health. This fundraiser is only made possible through pre-med students who are guided by Director, Dr. Carlos Pulidowho spends months planning and operating this fundraiser. American Heritage’s Pre-Med Program takes part in competitions including the Health Occupations Students of America “HOSA”. Endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education and the Health Science Technology Education Division of ACTE, American Heritage students compete nationally through HOSA in such areas as medical terminology, pathophysiology, and sports medicine.
