Scrubs Academy News

Saturday Scrubs Participants

Saturday Scrubs is a free program designed to encourage and inspire Arizona high school students to explore their existing interest in becoming a physician. Each Saturday Scrubs event is intended to introduce participants to a variety of topics related to medicine and the human body. Every session includes lectures by medical professionals and hands-on/interactive activities. 

If you attend at least seven sessions, you will be an official graduate of the Scrubs Academy program and will be presented with a set of Scrubs at the May 2020 session.

Important note for participation:
In order to participate in these sessions, you and your parent or guardian must complete and review the following items:

  • Review (you do not need to turn in) – UA Student Code Of Conduct (PDF).
  • Complete (these must be turned in) – UA Non-enrolled Minor Policy Legal Forms (PDF).
    • You must download the forms and bring them with you to the registered session. If you do not bring the signed legal forms, you WILL NOT be able to participate in the session. If you sign up for multiple sessions throughout the academic year, you will only need to turn in the legal forms at the first session you attend.
