Want to go to medical school but don't want to put in the clinical hours or take tests?
The University of Colorado popular "Mini Med School," a program that has been replicated across the country, is expanding this winter to cover the clinical years.
Now, the free, eight-week program gives participants an overview of medicine -- without the homework, tests or degree. (Though participants who attend five of the seven sessions get a "diploma.")
"Mini Med School part 2: The clinical years" will be a pilot program and offered at the Anschutz Medical Campus only. The program, which will also follow an eight-week format, will not be simulcast to distance sites -- like the original Mini Med School has been in past years. But if it goes well, the program will be offered at satellite locations like Boulder.
