The Medical Application of Science for Health (M*A*S*H) Program is a two-week intensive summer program for high school students who will be entering their junior or senior year in the Fall school year. The M*A*S*H Program is sponsored and funded by North Arkansas Regional Medical Center, the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, the Arkansas Farm Bureau, Arkansas Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Baptist Health and local businesses. There is no charge to attend the program.
An integral part of the M*A*S*H experience is exposure to the differing areas of medicine and the variety of health-related professions. Students will learn to identify some of the various health care disciplines, what they do, how they relate to one another, and how the fundamentals of anatomy, biology, pharmacology, and physiology are employed in each discipline. The basic science connections to medical diagnosis and treatment will be reinforced through lecture presentations, labs, and clinical interactions. Additionally, students will be exposed to the importance of healthy lifestyle habits and will earn their certification in CPR & First Aid. Contact NARMC Education Department for more information.
