The University of Missouri - School of Medicine offers an exciting and informative summer experience for high school juniors interested in a career in medicine. MU's High School Mini Medical School is a one-week program that gives students a preview of life as an MU medical student. Students will get hands-on experience in anatomy, suturing, and clinical skills; an introduction to MU's innovative patient-based learning (PBL) curriculum; and attend seminars on college and medical school entrance and medical school life. Students will attend special sessions with clinical and research specialists and have meaningful interactions with current medical students, faculty and staff of the school of Medicine. Students must have completed their junior year of high school, complete an application, have their high school transcript and ACT or PSAT scores sent by the high school, and have a science teacher's recommendation. Cost of the program is $600, but some scholarships are available. Interested students can find more application information and scholarship information at https://medicine.missouri.edu/education/pre-med-outreach-programs/mini-medical-school/.
