The Mini Medical School Program
Please note that Spring Semester 2020 has been cancelled.
Baystate Health is committed to caring for those we serve, due to current concerns about the COVID-19 outbreak and recommendations by the CDC, about social distancing, Baystate Health is instituting restrictions for events and meetings. These are important policy changes that support our priority focused on the health and safety of our community, patients and team members.
At this time, we have no way of knowing how long the COVID-19 outbreak will remain a concern. We appreciate your patience as we continue to review policies and procedures to keep one another and our patients safe. Thank you for your understanding.
The Mini Medical School program is an eight-part health education series, taught at Baystate Medical Center in Springfield, featuring a different aspect of medicine each week. Designed for an adult audience, each course is taught by an energetic faculty member who will explain the science of medicine without resorting to complex terms. You can see the class schedule and directions below as well as a message from our Chief Medical Officer.
Mini Medical School gives us the opportunity to open our doors to the public and share our knowledge of medicine in a comfortable and friendly environment. Many students participate due to a general interest and later find that many of the things they learned over the semester are relevant to their own lives. The goal of this program is to help members of the public make more informed decisions about all aspects of their health care while receiving insight about what it's like to be a medical student.
Tuition is $95 per person, $80 for Baystate Health employees, Senior Class and Baystate Health Every Woman members. Each student must attend a minimum of six classes in order to receive a certificate of completion.
