A Mini Medical School to Prepare for Life’s Second Half
Welcome to the Mini Medical School website, UC Davis Health’s acclaimed program dedicated to the promotion of healthy aging!
On sequential Saturday mornings each winter since 2002, UC Davis has opened its doors so that anyone, regardless of age or means, has an opportunity to attend classes taught by members of the School of Medicine faculty. The original Mini Medical School educational program focused on human aging, specifically: preventing and treating diseases commonly experienced by older persons. Since then, there as been extensive growth in the UC Davis Health educational and research mission, and the Mini Medical School has been able to expand its curricular offerings accordingly. The Mini Medical School now features faculty from beyond the School of Medicine, including prominent clinician-researchers from the UC Davis Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing, and several highly regarded university research centers. Collaborative programs within the university and beyond have generated affiliations from which the UC Davis Mini Medical School has gladly recruited talented clinicians, researchers and educators. At no time has the need for wisdom, collaboration and “thinking outside the box” been more important than now, a reality underscored by tragic events over the past year.
The theme of the 2021 Mini Medical School is “Health in the Headlines – where have we been, where are we now and where are we going?”
Given the ongoing pandemic, the 2021 Mini Medical School will be a distance learning event, and provided as a Facebook Live webinar. This may disappoint those of you who previously have enjoyed the opportunity to dialogue with our faculty. Rest assured that every Mini Medical School lecture will be followed by a lengthy Q&A period during which the faculty presenter will answer as many questions as time permits.
There are no prerequisites to attend the Mini Medical School. The first lecture will provide you with the necessary information to understand the second presentation, the second will prepare you for the third, and so on. All you need is a well-rested brain and a thirst for evidence-based medical information.
