    The University of Missouri - School of Medicine offers an exciting and informative summer experience for high school students 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. The program includes:


    ♦ Hands-on experience in anatomy, microbiology, and clinical skills

    ♦ Introduction to MU’s innovative patient-based learning (PBL) curriculum

    ♦ Seminars on college and medical school entrance and medical school life


    In addition, 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.


    Mini Med School is intended for students who will begin their senior year in the Fall of 2016.  Selection criteria have been modified, and while ACT scores and GPAs are considered, the selection committee is very interested in the following:


    ♦ Student response to essay question

    ♦ Academic effort and success

    ♦ Involvement in extracurricular activities (school and community)

    ♦ High school science teacher recommendation
