LECOM Bradenton Medical Science Academy 2022

Thank you for your interest in LECOM Bradenton’s 2022 Medical School Academy (MSA). This two-week summer experience is designed to provide you with an academic medical school environment by participating in small group instructions, hands-on laboratory experiments, and clinical shadowing experience.

MSA Family Night Thursday, May 12, 2022 5:00 p.m. MSA students and their parents will gather in Lecture Hall 211 in LECOM’s College of Medicine (COM) Building which is located at 5000 Lakewood Ranch Blvd. The following activities will take place during this meeting:

  • Welcome & Introduction of MSA Staff
  • MSA Program Description
  • Distribution of Anatomy & Physiology Textbooks (to be returned to LECOM on Friday, June 17th)
  • Parental Signature on required documents for participation in MSA
  • Tour of LECOM’s COM

Description of Activities

  • Five hours of presentations on the central theme of Neurobiology will be given by College of Medicine Faculty.
  • Problem-based Learning (PBL) Cases on topics that are related to the Neurobiology lecture theme.
  • MSA students (40) will be divided into five PBL groups consisting of 8 students and two OMS II facilitators. Five PBL cases have been selected by the MSA personnel that contain a common chief complaint. The patient’s subjective and objective data, however, vary between the five cases.  All cases have a patient’s history and physical data followed by a Complete Blood Count, Lab Chemistry values, and Urine test results.  Additional tests may include an ECG or X-Ray or MRI imaging.  All cases are framed from the primary care perspective.
  • Each PBL group will be given one of five different cases with a common chief complaint.  The OMS II facilitator will utilize standard PBL discovery and interactive procedures.   PBL groups will have four days to determine the diagnosis and to explore the basic medical sciences (anatomy, physiology, biochemistry, etc.) associated with the case.  They will have two hours on the last day of the week to prepare a grand rounds type presentation of the case, which will be delivered during the graduation program.  Students will use the library resources (software, models, and textbooks) to prepare their PowerPoint presentation for graduation.

Lunch/Free Time the LECOM Bradenton cafeteria will provide the students with a box lunch and snacks.  Students may bring their own lunch and snacks, which are to be stored in a designated MSA section in the cafeteria.  No food or drink is allowed in rooms outside of the cafeteria.  Students are free to have their lunch out on the patio tables.
