What is Mini Med School BC? Each year, this traveling program gives students from different BC regions the opportunity to interact with BC Children's Hospital researchers and clinicians. We use big ideas, big discoveries and big names to explore health research topics.

At Mini Med School Vancouver Island, you'll have the opportunity to:

  • Learn about the latest medical research happening in BC
  • Explore the diverse careers available in science and medicine
  • Engage with world-class researchers and health professionals
  • Network with like-minded students from across Vancouver Island

Interested in participating? 

Fully vaccinated grade 10-12 students affiliated with a Vancouver Island high school are welcome to participate in this free one-day program in Nanaimo OR Victoria. To maximize interactions between students and the Mini Med School Faculty, space is limited. 

Mini Med School Vancouver Island is a special event held outside the classroom and will be hosted on a school day. Students will be expected to make their own arrangements to miss a day of classes and find transportation to and from the venue.
