CampMed at UCI is a non-profit education enrichment program.

Today, CampMed at UCI encompasses a mentorship program, various high school career development events, and a unique 3-day camp experience. Workshops in the past included: ultrasound, phlebotomy, intubation, medical ethics, suturing, dental impressions, team building exercises, first-aid and search & rescue. The mentorship program consists of two parts: mentorship through bi-weekly interactive, and informative workshops and activities at the high school, and mentorship through a mentee-mentor relationship subsequent to camp.  This peer-mentoring program targets youth who may not have the resources to reach their potential, in order to help them grow to become confident and successful leaders and encourage them to pursue higher education. 

How is CampMed Funded?

The high school students attend CampMed at NO COST TO THEM. However, it costs approximately $140 per camper to send these participants to CampMed free-of-charge. Since CampMed at UCI is organized and directed by undergraduate, graduate and medical student volunteers, outside support is essential. All donations are tax deductible and all of the proceeds raised support camp functions. CampMed at UCI is a non-profit organization of the University of California, Irvine and has 501(C) status.
