For the past several years, Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center has participated in the Explorations program, in partnership with Harvard Medical School.
Explorations is a program for Boston and Cambridge 6th, 7th, and 8th grade
school students who have an interest in Science, Mathematics, or Health
careers. The program links area faculty, research associates, and medical
students with Boston middle school students, exposing them to research
laboratories, science career paths, and includes discussions about the
importance of academic preparation. BIDMC proudly hosts over 50 students
each year. Explorations is sponsored by the
Harvard Medical School Office for Diversity and Community Partnership
and its Minority Faculty Development Program, K-12 Programs, and Biomedical
Science Careers Program.
