M*A*S*H (Medical Applications of Science for Health) camp is an excellent summer enrichment program sponsored state-wide by UAMS and the Arkansas Farm Bureau Federation that allows rising high school juniors and seniors to shadow health professionals and attend workshops that enhance their experience in the health care field. MASH is a two week program. MASH students participate in dissections, casting, suturing, intubation and ventilation, CPR training, job-shadowing, a UAMS tour, and much, much more.
