The Mini Medical School Experience program is an 8-9 hour program that provides an overview of medical school with an emphasis on clinical information. The program is held each summer and during the year at area high schools, colleges and/or Edward Hospital. The students hear lectures for four hours and are then broken up into groups of four to five students who then rotate as a group through a 16 stations, spending 10 minutes on each procedure. Each station, or “experience,” is staffed with a trained Mini Medical School Teaching Assistant who completed the full winter program and was found to be an outstanding student. The program then ends with a lecture on school admissions.
Enrollment into this program is on a first come first served basis. The application is informational only, no essay, no teacher recommendation, and no interview. Applications are accepted as long as there is space in the class. The program is appropriate for any student interested in learning about medical school and the medical
profession. The program fee for this class is $200 and includes all expenses (class t-shirt, lunch and snacks, all medical supplies).
When attending the program, please drop off and pick up your student at the Cancer Center entrance just to the left of the ER entrance.
