Mini Med School is a pre-college program based at Tufts Medical School. This program is a collaboration between the Center for Science Education at the School of Medicine and administered through Tufts University College.

The program gives students who are interested in learning more about a career as a physician to interact with medical students and faculty and get a taste of what medical school is like.

Students have the opportunity to work on a Capstone Project on a health topic in the form of a video about a health-related topic. This experience helps students understand the challenges of science communication.

Mini-Med is a two-week summer program offered in virtual and on-campus formats, with formats subject to change based on the evolving situation with the COVID pandemic.
