MASH Student Program

The Maury Academy for Students in Health (MASH) program is a one-week health careers summer camp held in June for high school students interested in learning about health professions. Click here to learn about the 2022 MASH program.

Exposure to different areas of medicine and health-related professions is an integral part of the MASH experience. Students interact with health care experts, including physicians, registered nurses, medical technologists, radiologic technologists and respiratory therapists. During the program, students learn about physical assessment, casting, suturing, medical terminology and much more. 

Applicants must be entering their junior or senior year in high school, have completed one biology class, demonstrate scholastic ability and critical thinking skills and provide recommendations from school personnel. Students must also attend an interview as part of the application process.
