Doctor detectives analyzing the evidence left behind
About This Camp
Junior Medics will journey into a different area of medicine where doctors and scientists specialize in the gathering and analyzing of evidence found at a crime scene. We have designed this interesting yet somewhat sensitive topic in a way that is appropriate for this age group. This highly specialized field of professionals work very closely with law enforcement and use their medical knowledge and expertise to establish facts in civil or criminal cases that can bring criminals to justice. Think of them as doctor detectives! Medics CSI (criminal scene investigators) will explore forensic pathology, toxicology, odontology (teeth), entomology (insects), anthropology (bones) as well as DNA, blood basics and dactyloscopy (fingerprints). On Friday they will use the knowledge and skills they acquired during the week to solve a crime. If your future doctor or scientist is up for a challenge, they won’t want to miss Forensic Med.
