Due to the popularity of the Mini Medical University for Teens program, Memorial Hospital’s Ambassador Services Department will once again offer a one-of-a-kind learning experience for high school students 15-18 who have an interest in medicine. This action-packed, hands-on experience will include lectures from clinicians in specialty areas, labs, various career opportunities in a hospital setting, exposure to a clinical unit and service within Memorial. Mini-Medical University for Teens 101 is a full-day, week-long experience. Students who successfully complete Mini-Medical University for Teens 101 are also eligible to interview for a volunteer position at the hospital. Due to privacy laws and other requirements, only high school students aged 15-17 who successfully complete Mini-Medical University for Teens are eligible to volunteer while in high school. High school seniors who are 18 or older are eligible to volunteer in the hospital once they either complete New Ambassador Orientation, or attend Mini-Medical University for Teens.
