If you have a passion for health care or just want to get a taste of what doctors learn in medical school, check out our free videos from Mini Medical School 2019.
This popular six-week course of free lectures, led by partners Christiana Care and the Delaware Academy of Medicine/Delaware Public Health Association, attracted 200 students this year. Sessions, taught by Christiana Care caregivers, included a look at Nursing Today, the Gene Editing Revolution, and Clinical Trials 101.
“Mini Medical School is an amazing way to engage our community and those we serve,” said Omar Khan, M.D., MHS, Christiana Care physician leader for Research Administration & Scientific Affairs and president and CEO of the Delaware Health Sciences Alliance.
“Caregivers throughout Christiana Care love being partners in education, and this is a wonderful opportunity to serve,” said Dr. Khan. “The talks are topical and interactive, and our diverse audience, representing the breadth of Delaware, looks forward to this program each year. They’re a true team effort.”
For more than a decade, this peek inside medical school has attracted both teens and adults with a love for science and medical knowledge. The classes are designed to share in-depth medical information with no pressure, no tests and no grades. Participants who attended all six sessions received a certificate of achievement.
Timothy E. Gibbs, MPH, executive director, Delaware Academy of Medicine, said the annual program has dual, equally important purposes. “Mini-Medical School is an educational and health literacy program for adults, and a way that we engage middle, high school and undergrad students, encouraging them to consider a career in the health sciences,” he said.
Mini Medical School is in session each spring, and lectures fill up quickly. Be in the know about Mini Medical School registrations for 2020: Follow Christiana Care on Facebook or Twitter, or check our online events and classes calendar.
