Mini Med Spring Class of 2012. More Mini Med photos from the inaugural session can be viewed on our Facebook page.
Thirty-four community members now comprise LSU Health Shreveport's first Mini Med graduating class. Participants ranged from teenagers to retirement age. Some are interested in applying to medical school in the future, but most attended simply to learn more about interesting topics and see more of the programs and facilities LSU Health Shreveport offers.
The group heard lectures each Tuesday evening for a month in an easy to understand format from the same faculty members and experienced the same hands-on activities of a real medical school class this spring. The feedback was positive, with everyone responding that they would recommend the program to their friends and family.
"All of the lecturers seemed joyful and honored to speak to us," said one participant. "That was the absolute best part!"
Another session is planned for the fall. More information, including dates, will be posted on the Mini Med website
