What does it mean to be healthy? Who are doctors, and what do they DO?
AACOM is launching Doctors & What They DO, a new, free summer program to help 3rd-6th graders learn about health, wellness and the osteopathic medical profession.
About the Program
The 3rd-6th grade students participating in our free summer program
will complete a two-week curriculum, Monday-Friday, consisting of 10 lessons ranging from 30-50 minutes. All lessons will be offered virtually and taught by current osteopathic medical students. We aim to offer future programs in person, following the COVID-19 pandemic. Download Informational Flyer
Aligned with Common Core State Standards
Carefully designed to educate and inspire the next generation of doctors, the lessons and curricular resources are aligned with Common Core State Standards and were developed by AACOM in partnership with educational consultants Rachel Koval and Katie Murphy. Ms. Koval and Murphy have trained all the participating osteopathic medical student instructors to ensure they are fully equipped to teach the material.
The virtual program runs Monday through Friday. All classes run no longer than 50 minutes. All times are Eastern Standard Time.
