Designed for individuals who want to gain a deeper understanding of the world of medicine, Mini-Medical School is a free, virtual, six-week series of lectures for adults of all ages and middle, junior, and high school students.
Spring 2023 Delaware Mini Medical School is co-sponsored by ChristianaCare and the Delaware Academy of Medicine / Delaware Public Health Association. Attendees learn about important trends in diagnosing and treating illness and general health topics. Faculty will provide in-depth lectures and allow time for questions to enhance the experience. There are no tests or grades. No previous medical training is required. Participants who attend all six sessions will receive a Certificate of Achievement.
Participants who attend all six sessions will receive a Signed Certificate of Achievement. Attendance is taken in each session via an online survey for this purpose. For students who are unable, or do not want to attend all six sessions, a self-signed certificate will be made available at the conclusion of the series.
