Getting hurt is no fun, but it is loads of fun to repair the body with surgery. Come learn how to repair injured bones, organs, and skin. Unfortunately, we can’t practice on humans so instead, we will practice on frogs, pig organs and special bones. You will be using real-life surgery techniques such as endoscopy, suturing, drilling and more. We will master suturing techniques, fracture plating, ACL reconstructions, anesthesia, CPR and even removal of cancerous growths. At the end of the week, we will officially open our own Emergency Room and invite parents to watch their future surgeons in action!

Led byLucky Ding B.A.

In third grade, Lucky wrote a class report on Dr. Mae Jemison, a physician-scientist-astronaut who was the first African American female to go into space. As she grew older, Lucky learned that Dr. Jemison also conducted biomedical research in space and built numerous science-education programs when she returned to Earth. Lucky has been inspired by her ever since. Lucky aspires to improve medical treatments for patients through scientific discovery and patient care, which is why she majored in science and now attends medical school.

In addition to extensive research work, Lucky mentored high school students through UCSF’s workshops focused on scientific discovery and interactive hands-on activities.

Lucky is a medical student at the UCSF School of Medicine. Previously, she earned her B.A. in Molecular and Cell Biology—Immunology from UC Berkeley.
