  PMSA Students Get Medical, Science Experience in PULSE Program


For the past few years, the PULSE program has provided students at Proviso Mathematics and Science Academy with educational enrichments in the fields of medicine and science.

Medical students from the Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine mentored our PMSA students by offering them hands-on experiences in different branches of medicine, career advice, and college preparation assistance. For example, during the first workshop, our students learned to identify the tools commonly used in a general physical exam, and they were instructed how to analyze basic vital readings. In the anatomy laboratory, the students were taught how to identify the basic anatomical structures of the heart and lungs in the school’s anatomy laboratory.
