A group of Gwinnett County students got to go straight from their high school classrooms to the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine this summer, taking courses on emergency medicine, pathology and pharmacy — even an anatomy lab with some hands-on opportunities.


“I was surprised when they showed us a human brain,” said Christian Parkinson, a rising senior at Lanier High School. “And I got to hold it.”

Parkinson and about 30 other students were participating in the weeklong Opportunities Academy at PCOM. The academy is free to attend and introduces students to different careers in the medical field, offering them a chance to talk with students and teachers at the school
