AnMed Pre-Med Boot Camp

What Is It?

There is a great need for physicians–now and in the future–and we recognize that the challenges facing pre-med students can be overwhelming and confusing. In 2022, Anderson University and AnMed established a partnership to introduce a Pre-Med Boot Camp. This two-week camp aims to offer resources and advice to South Carolina undergraduate students to prepare them for medical school.

We believe that finances and lack of opportunity should never stop a motivated individual from preparing for medical school, so we offer the camp at zero cost to participants.

What are the benefits of attending?
  • Meet other students interested in medical school from across the Upstate.
  • Participate in sessions led by the four medical schools in South Carolina on their school and the admission process.
  • Listen to panels with physicians about their journeys to medical school and ask questions about their specialties.

There is no cost to attend, unless students elect to pay $150 to have a private room. Students are responsible for their own transportation costs to and from the camp and during the camp. Students are responsible for their own food costs during the experience. Lunch is provided for a few days, but all other meals are at their own expense.
