Each camper will be trained in physiology and pathology to gain a better understanding of the human body and the origins of diseases.  At Nittany Lion, M.D., Science-U staff will put your future pre-med students to the test as they diagnose mysterious diseases and conditions and solve cases that are puzzling even to licensed medical professionals.  Do you have what it takes to be a doctor?
