Mini-Medical University for Teens

About the Program

For the past eight summers Memorial Hospital’s Ambassador Services Department has offered an one-of-a-kind learning experience for high school aged students. This hands-on, in depth experience includes lectures from clinicians in specialty areas, labs, various career opportunities in a hospital setting, exposure to a clinical unit and service within Memorial.

Mini-Medical University for Teens 101 is a full-day, week-long experience offered during the summer. Students who successfully complete Mini-Medical University for Teens 101 are also eligible to interview for a volunteer position at the hospital.

Program Prerequisites

Students ages 15-18 who have an interest in medicine.

Due to privacy laws and other requirements, only high school students aged 15-17 who successfully complete Mini-Medical University for Teens are eligible to volunteer while in high school. High school seniors who are 18 or older are eligible to volunteer in the hospital once they either complete the Ambassador Orientation.
