CU medical school’s Mini Med 2 debuts

Popular program expands to 'the clinical years'
By Staff

Mini Med School has taught more than 17,000 people the basics of science and medicine. Founded in 1989 by J. John Cohen, M.D., Ph.D., a University of Colorado School of Medicine professor of Immunology and Medicine, the Mini Med concept has spread nationally and internationally.

Now there’s a sequel.

Introducing “Mini Med School Part 2: The clinical years.”

This pilot program will be offered on the Anschutz Medical Campus beginning Jan. 11, 2012. It will run Wednesdays, 7-8:30 pm, through February. Priority registration will be given to graduates of Mini Med School. There are plans to broadcast the sessions to satellite sites in the future.

Topics of Part 2 include: the doctor-patient relationship; heart disease and risk modification; childhood development; pneumonia and smoking; trauma and injury prevention; diabetes and obesity; and pregnancy, delivery and prenatal care.

Dennis Boyle, M.D., and Stephen Wolf, M.D., both on the medical school faculty, will lead this pilot program.

Registration is free but seats are limited so register now. More information and a registration form are available online.
