Giuliano Masci has been accepted as a Renaissance Scholar in the Baylor University Scholars program.  He will attend this summer.

This is a very intensive program at the Honors College for students interested in sciences.  The colleges that get money from the oil industries have many of these  opportunities for students in Texas, Oklahoma, North Dakota and Louisiana.  We were very pleased for Giuliano to have been chosen because they only take 60 students nationwide.

Renaissance Scholars is an elite week-long summer program designed for Juniors going into their senior year of high school with pre-health interests.

Today, scientists and medical doctors face unprecedented challenges and pressing ethical questions concerning the distribution of Healthcare, cloning, care for the disabled, abortion and euthanasia to list a few.  In Renaissance Scholars, we aim to help you consider these questions through an encounter with great philosophers and theologians.  During an intensive week of study, students  will participate in three courses that will expandtheir horizons and allow them to explore their role in the future of medicine and the sciences.

Philosophy, Science, and Religion:  Through readings and small-group discussions, join in the great conversation with scientist-philosophers, as they wonder about the intelligibility of the natural world, the role of human knowledge and powered in that world, and about the connections between science and religion.

Medical Ethics: Explore from a Christian perspective what it means to think about medicine, the calling of a doctor, the doctor-patient relationship, and the goal of scientific research.

Latin medical Terminology:  Gain familiarity with medical terminology through the study of Latin roots that shape the study of healthcare.

Seminar-style Collegiate Learning:  Participate in co-curricular conversations about pressing questions concerning death, suffering, the opportunities and limits of technology, and the meaning of human life as found in recent films such as The Dark Knight, The Book of Eli, and the Harry Potter series.

Professional Guidance:  Hear presentations from the directors of the Pre-Health Program at Baylor and from faculty, current students and alumni about pre-medical opportunities at Baylor, including research, medical mission trips and study abroad programs designed for pre-med students.
