Tuesday evenings from February 5 to March 12
2013 Mini-Med School is over. Mini-Medical 2014 will be posted sometime end of this year.
UW Medicine's 2013 Mini-Medical School is a series of exciting lectures and demonstrations open to the general public and designed to teach you about medical science, patient care and leading-edge research underway at the University of Washington. This year’s program takes place at 7 p.m. on consecutive Tuesdays from February 5 to March 12 in Hogness Auditorium at the Warren G. Magnuson Health Sciences Center, adjacent to UW Medical Center on the south end of the UW campus. The series is free, and we encourage people who enjoy their experience to contribute to UW Medicine.
At Mini-Medical School, UW Medicine experts will discuss what’s new in preventing and reducing the impact of injury, violence and disaster. You will hear about the expanding field of palliative care, examine some of the latest technologies in artificial devices, learn about new innovations and treatments for babies with special needs, and how to keep our young athletes safe and healthy.
