What is mini medical school? In 1989, the chancellor of the University of Colorado (CU) in Denver raised a concern about the relationship between the CU Medical School and the surrounding community. He worried that the public did not really understand or appreciate what the medical school was about. The chancellor asked Dr. J. John Cohen to come up with a way to show people what the CU medical school does. With that charge and his own inspiration and wisdom, Dr. Cohen created the first Mini Medical School. The program is typically a lecture series that meets once a week and provides “mini-med students” information on some of the same subjects studied by “real” medical students. Mini-Med School students do not need a science background to attend (NIH, Office of Science Education, https://eric.ed.gov/?id=ED502046).
