The Mini Med School course curriculum has been designed for a senior high school audience. With only 4 evenings to explore new scientific concepts, participants should expect a fast-paced virtual learning environment. Similar to a postsecondary seminar, Mini Med School is lecture-based with content building on previously introduced ideas. Some students may find this format challenging, so we encourage you to consider your preferred learning style before deciding to participate.
