MIZZOU HS Mini Medical School
The University of Missouri - School of Medicine offers an exciting and informative summer experience for high school students interested in a career in medicine. MU’s High School Mini Medical School is a one-week program that gives students a preview of life as an MU medical student. The program includes:
♦ Hands-on experience in anatomy, microbiology, and clinical skills
♦ Introduction to MU’s innovative patient-based learning (PBL) curriculum
♦ Seminars on college and medical school entrance and medical school life
In addition, students will attend special sessions with clinical and research specialists and have meaningful interactions with current medical students, faculty and staff of the School of Medicine.
Mini Med School is intended for students who will begin their senior year in the Fall of 2016. Selection criteria have been modified, and while ACT scores and GPAs are considered, the selection committee is very interested in the following:
♦ Student response to essay question
♦ Academic effort and success
♦ Involvement in extracurricular activities (school and community)
♦ High school science teacher recommendation
Students from disadvantaged backgrounds are encouraged to apply. Scholarships are available.
Interested high school juniors can find more application information at our website http://medicine.missouri.edu/admissions/minimed.html. Applications will be available after the first of the year on that website and should be submitted electronically.
The application deadline is March 1, 2016.
For additional information please contact me at 573-884-5056 or email@example.com.
Thank you for your assistance.
