FREE – Starts Sept. 5
Mini Med School is a free eight-week course offered by the University of Colorado Denver designed to teach people about the medical profession and to help people advocate for their own health. Physicians give one-hour lectures about a medical topic followed by a question-and-answer session. Lectures are open to all ages and occur on Wednesday evenings starting September 5. At the conclusion of the program, participants will receive a certificate.
The upcoming sessions include: a day in the life of an emergency physician; what you need to know about Diabetes Mellitus; a storm chasing physician’s account of the Joplin tornado and lessons for emergency preparedness; women’s health in 2018; the primary care dilemma; a day in the life of a rheumatologist; a day in the life of a cardiologist; end of life care.
