Mini Med School starts new term

Tuesday, October 2, 2007

The Mini Medical School at Western’s Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry starts its fifth year on Thursday and once again, the class is full with a waiting list.  This popular lecture series from our Faculty, Staff & Community Development Office lets participants experience the feel of attending medical school without the final exams, high tuition, or cadavers.  Some of the highlights of this term include a look at ecosystem health, infertility treatments and transplant surgery.  The lectures are held in Room D1002 of the Dental Sciences Building from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on six consecutive Thursday evenings.
