Mini-Med School

Mini-Med School

In collaboration with scientists and doctors at Tufts University, we’ve developed an intensive summer program that gives high school students a taste of medical school. Students are paired with medical student mentors who guide them through medical case studies and a hands-on microbiology lab. Through lectures followed by Q&A sessions, students learn about a wide variety of subjects from the threat of antimicrobial resistance to kidney disease to what it takes to get into medical school. Throughout the program, students experience the challenge of science communication by creating a Capstone video about an important health topic.
