This program is 20 hours long divided over 6 sessions. We offer the program twice, one class being held on Saturday afternoons and the second is being held on Sunday afternoons.
The first five sessions are held at the Edward - Plainfield ER conference rooms located on 24600 W 127th St, Plainfield, IL 60585 . Our 6th session is held at the Edward Hospital Education Center 3rd floor auditorium and conference rooms. Parents and students are invited to this session. Dr Rubin will then explain how students go from high school to med school. We then conclude with a graduation ceremony.
The application has 4 parts:
1. An online form which includes a short essay
2. A parent consent form.
3. A counselor form
4. A teacher recommendation from a science or math teacher.
* Best to use your teacher from last year or a prior year.
We need all 4 parts to consider you for the program. Once all complete forms are received we will invite students who we believe will best benefit from our program for an interview. Acceptance into the program is competitive and depends on an evaluation of your application and a personal interview, just like a real medical school. After completed applications are reviewed, we select students for a formal interview on a rolling basis. A check for our program fee of $400 made payable to Dr. Rubin’s Mini Medical School is collected from all students at the time of interview. If a student is not accepted, the check is destroyed. The program fee covers all expenses. All students who apply will receive an emailed response by the second week of December. Students who do not send in a complete application will not be considered for the program. It is the student’s responsibly to ensure we receive a complete application. The application deadline every year is Oct 31 and the deadline for supporting forms (teacher, counselor and consent) is Nov 7.
