Mini-Medical University for Teens
Mini-Medical University for Teens 101
During the summer of 2012, for the fourth year in a row, Memorial Hospital’s Ambassador Services Department offered a one-of-a-kind learning experience for high school students 15-18 who had an interest in medicine. This action-packed, hands-on experience included lectures from clinicians in specialty areas, labs, exposure to a clinical unit and service within Memorial. Mini-Medical University for Teens 101 is a full-day, week-long experience.
Due to the popularity of the program, the summer 2013 sessions are full. If you are interested in possible summer 2014 sessions, please call 574-647-6495 to request a place on the waiting list. If a summer session will be offered in 2014, details about the program, including an application, will be sent at the end of February 2014 to students on the waiting list.
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.
Only students who have successfully completed Mini-Medical University for Teens 101 and who are still in high school are eligible to attend the advanced Mini-Medical University for Teens 201. Eligible students will be notified if this program will be offered.
Please call Pam in the office of Ambassador and Customer Services at 574-647-6495 with any questions or to have your name placed on the waiting list for information.
