Enrollment is now open for Stamford Hospital's "Mini Medical School" spring semester.
The semester consists of six free weekly lectures open to the public, structured to mimic the medical school experience. Each class offers information, focused on a medical topic, including anatomy, function, common disease states and available treatments. All participating physicians are board-certified and considered leaders in their fields.
“Our physicians present an exciting series of lectures and demonstrations to a diverse group of students in a language that everyone can understand,” said Henry Yoon, MD, family physician and director of the Mini Med School Program at Stamford Hospital. “The Mini Medical School program offers a unique learning opportunity, whether someone comes to one lecture or all six. It is an excellent way for our physicians to connect with the community and offer a dynamic introduction to the world of medicine and health.”
