MedEx Academy, or Medical Experience Academy, is a medical internship through the University of South Carolina School of Medicine Greenville. There are five tiers to the program with the first tier open to rising seniors in high school.
For Tier 1, the program selects 50 students from across the state. Students submit an application, teacher recommendations and an essay. They then go through an interview process with a callback interview for those who make it to the next level. Congratulations to Judah Smith for being chosen to participate this summer!
Judah took part in the four-week program in July that seeks to expose its students to numerous medical fields in hopes of becoming a pipeline for the School of Medicine. At the end of the four weeks, students receive certificates of participation during a graduation program.
