About the Summer Surgery Program


UC Irvine’s Summer Surgery Program was established in 2012 and has continued to evolve into one of the most premier medical based high school summer programs offered.

Our program is aimed to inspire high school students to pursue their interest in medicine by exposing them to hands-on experiences across several fields of healthcare. Our program is structured to ensure that our participants have access to mentors through all stages of higher education from undergraduate (pre-med) students, to Medical Students, Residents, and Attending Physicians. As a result of this mentorship experience, we hope students will have more insight and exposure into the daily life, aspirations, and motivations of health professionals at all levels of training.
