DMU announces Mini Medical School 2018 lineup

Experience the Des Moines University campus and expand your medical knowledge – without taking the MCAT. Attend Mini Medical School, a program that offers the public non-credit education on popular topics in health and medicine.

The five-week Mini Med School lecture series runs Tuesday evenings from 7-8:30 p.m. from February 6 – March 6, 2018. The talks are conducted by local experts and geared toward a non-medical audience. Mini Med School is perfect for lifelong learners or students interested in pursuing careers in health care. Prior to each evening’s talk, DMU students provide short hands-on activities and demonstrations for attendees.
