Medicine Merit Badge Program

Every other year, Aspirus Wausau Hospital hosts a half-day clinic where Boy Scouts have the opportunity to earn the Medicine Merit Badge. Medicine Merit Badge is a fun merit badge appropriate for most Scouts.

During the program, the Scouts will learn about health care positions, educational requirements, and the practice of medicine. They will visit several stations, where they will receive an overview of  robotic surgery, nuclear medicine, treatment of muscular injuries, orthopedic surgery, nephrology, blood pressure, and critical care transport.
