Mini Medical School at Roger Williams Medical Center is a Big Success

Thursday, May 13, 2010

 

If you have always wanted to go to medical school, or just have an interest in the field of health medical science, you can earn a diploma in less than a month at the Roger Williams Medical Center Mini Medical School. The best part? It's free.
 
Hundreds of Rhode Islanders have participated in the state's only Mini Medical School since 2006. A background in medicine is not required and most people who take enroll have no medical background at all, according to Brett Davey, Director of Public Relations at RWMC.
 
To date, there have been 28 classes held in the Kay Auditorium at Roger Williams Medical Center. Typically there are three classes scheduled in the fall and three more in the spring. A diploma is awarded at the completion of the course.
 
Each lecture is approximately 90 minutes long and taught by Roger Williams Medical Center physicians. Since RWMC is a teaching hospital affiliated with Boston University, lectures are often based on those given to residents and fellows at the hospital. The lectures are tailored for the person who doesn't have a background in medical science.
 
Some of the lectures are created in response to requests made from the public. Past session topics have included diabetes and knee replacement surgery. 
 
According to Davey, people don't necessarily take the classes because they want to learn more about a condition that they have. They tend to enroll because they are interested in learning more about the field of health and medical science.
 
How to Sign Up
 
Interested in getting your diploma at Roger Williams Mini Medical School? The spring session starts on May 13 and classes held from 6:30 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. once a week for three weeks. There is still time to sign up for the following courses:
