of Colorado Mini Medical School
Start Date: Monday 2 October 2017
End date: Monday 20 November 2017
The original Mini Medical School,
founded 1989, is now online as a free massive open online course (MOOC).
There are no prerequisites. Mini Medical School has been valuable
for people considering a career in the healthcare field; hundreds of our
“graduates” are now in, or have graduated from, health profession schools.
Subjects include Anatomy, Physiology, Cell and Molecular Biology, Immunology,
Infectious Disease, Neuroscience, and Cancer Biology.
No exams or course credit, but students get an up-to-date overview
of the basic science underpinnings of modern medicine in a lively, engaging
video format, taught by an award-winning teacher. There are seven weekly
modules, each consisting of about eight units which range from 4 to 7 minutes
long, allowing students to cover all the material in a couple of hours a week,
at their own pace, watching a unit whenever they have a few minutes to relax
and learn. Links to additional resources are available, as well as illustrated
transcripts, a busy interactive discussion forum (which includes current CU
medical students), optional self-test quizzes, and a Certificate of Completion.
