Program Overview

Mini-Medical School meets on seven consecutive Wednesday evenings during the fall. Throughout the program many fascinating topics in medical education will be examined, such as medical reasoning, dyslipidemia, anatomy, diabetes, and more.

Mini-Medical School is taught by UVa School of Medicine faculty members assisted by medical students.  Participants have the opportunity not only to talk to medical students about their experiences but also to have their own medical school experience.
