Mini Medical School: Putting the “Me” in “Medicine”
Ever wanted to go to medical school but couldn't stomach the thought of a gross anatomy lab? Now you can, without the fear of exams, student loans or cadavers. Our annual Mini Medical School, which runs on our Round Rock campus each fall and on our Bryan campus each spring, brings the college’s clinical and research faculty into the community to offer current health-related information in a relaxed, educational atmosphere.
Sessions are free and open to the public, and everyone from high school to retired seniors turn out to engage with our researchers in thought-provoking conversation on medical and healthcare topics of the day.
By attending Mini Medical School sessions, you’ll increase your comfort with medical terminology, enhance your scientific knowledge, gain new insights into medical research, and walk away with ideas and tips to apply to your own life.
Each session lasts approximately an hour and a half, which includes a presentation by a faculty expert followed by a Q&A session. Sessions will be also streamed live to the College of Medicine’s Facebook page, where viewers can post questions for the speaker in real time.
The Texas A&M Health Science Center College of Medicine’s Mini Medical School does more than educate. It puts you at the forefront of health care. It puts the “ME” in “Medicine”!
