St. George’s University School of Medicine, in association with Ramaiah Group of Institutions, Bangalore, India, have established a Mini-Medical School program on the campus of Legacy School and Ramaiah in Bangalore for students interested in a career in medicine.
Students enrolled in the Mini-Medical School program have an opportunity to gain valuable insights into a career in medicine and the life of a medical student, as well as have an opportunity to network with instructors, including Dr. G. Richard Olds, president of St. George’s University, who will be lecturing in the program.
“Students in India have demonstrated a growing interest in a career in medicine,” said Dr. Olds. “It is our hope that this program, designed to expose students to a range of topics in medicine in a practical and student-friendly format, ignites a desire to learn more about a rewarding and prestigious career path.”
The three-day Min-Med School program courses include:
- Medicine as a Global Career
- Need for Doctors in Emerging Countries like India
- Introduction to Medical Instruments and Devices
- Introduction to the Heart and Cardiovascular System
- Understanding the Nervous System
- Introduction to Lungs and Pulmonary System
- What is First Aid, Triage, and Suturing
The registration fee of Rs 5000 for the three-day program includes all classroom fees and lunch each day. The program starts 12 June and runs through 14 June at Legacy School in Bangalore.
Salil Gupta, South Asia Regional Manager for St. George’s University, is enthusiastic about bringing this successful medical school preview program to India.
“This program is perfect for those who may not have a physician as a member of their family, “said Gupta. “While there is a lot of interest in medicine as a career choice for their children among parents, navigating the path to medical school and then on to practicing can be confusing. The Mini-Med School program exposes students to the exciting and challenging career options that are present in the noble profession of medicine.”
