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 2023 session.
