Emerging Healthcare Professionals: Science of Surgery Summer Camp

August 9 - August 13, 2021


At this time, the application process has closed for the 2021 Summer Camp. 

Please check back in early 2022 for more information of upcoming opportunities. 

Special thanks to our event sponsors below.

Special thanks to The Donald B. and Dorothy L. Stabler Foundation, Women in STEM Committee, and Women in STEM Events.

This summer camp is a girls in STEM initiative for high school students rising into grades 10-12 who are interested in health careers and research. It will be facilitated by William Wong, D.O., Department of General Surgery and a resident of general surgery, and will highlight the careers of healthcare providers from diverse backgrounds, primarily women of color, who practice medicine at Penn State Health. The experience will include opportunities for enrichment in science, medicine, and technology. Students will complete hands-on basic surgical training such as suturing, central lines, chest tubes, and intubation. Students will have exposure to complete surgical cases and also view a Surgery Live! program as a part of the camp.

This program is completely scholarship funded, therefore an application and selection process will take place.

Dr. William Wong, D.O.

General Surgery Resident,
