Scripps helps students at local high schools and universities get an up close and personal view of health care. The Shiley Center for Orthopeadic Research and Education (SCORE) provides students interested in a health care career a chance to learn more about their chosen field — both clinical and research aspects. Participants are able to observe an orthopedic surgery firsthand, tour a lab, and meet and talk with a surgeon and a health care research team.
Students learn about aging and the musculoskeletal system, including how research leads to new therapies and treatments. In addition, the health care team discusses how leadingedge surgery can help conditions and diseases of the musculoskeletal system, such as arthritis.
