Mini Medical School (MMS)

MMS LogoThe UF Medical Guild and UF CPET are “Partnering for Tomorrow’s Health.” Secondary science, health, and vocational teachers are invited to the University of Florida Health Science Center and Shands at UF for a day filled with opportunities for teachers and university medical researchers to interact and to exchange ideas about medical education outreach.

Mini Medical School at the University of Florida is a one-day, in-service opportunity for middle and high school teachers to experience some of the many facets of the University of Florida College of Medicine. The program combines visits to clinical and research laboratories, brief lectures, networking with peers, exchange of best teaching practices, and career panel discussions.

The 2018 Mini Medical School will take place on Friday, February 23, 2018.
