We are thrilled with the outcome of our Mini Med School Program!
The program was a 4 -day educational preview program for high school or college students considering a career as a Physician - - or other healthcare professional.
We had a total of 13 students who were taught by one of our former EMT employees who just completed his first year of Osteopathic Medicine.
The course objectives included:
- Facilitating an understanding of what medical school courses are like, and gain a basic understanding of common diseases and patient presentations
- Understanding the integration between emergency medical pre-hospital care, and hospital based medicine
- Improve critical thinking, reading, problem solving skills and medical vocabulary
- Learn about the vast options in healthcare ranging from lab technicians to paramedics to surgeons
After 4 days of a dense curriculum, the feedback we got was that the students would have liked even MORE information and to go into more depth with the patient cases. We love the sounds of that!
Hmmmm...what should we do next? Mini Medic School? Definitely!
A special thank you to The Pre Med Life who created and facilitated this great program and opportunity for us to offer the community.
