St George’s University School of Medicine, Grenada, West Indies, in association with Ramaiah Group of Institutions, Bangalore, India, have established a Mini-Medical School programme on the campus of Legacy School in Bangalore for students interested in a career in medicine.

Students enrolled in the Mini-Medical School programme have an opportunity to gain valuable insights into a career in medicine and the life of a medical student, as well as have an opportunity to network with instructors, including St. George’s University President, Dr. G. Richard Olds who will be lecturing in the programme.

Students in India have demonstrated a growing interest in a career in medicine,” said Dr. Olds. “It is our hope that this programme, designed to expose students to a range of topics in medicine in a practical and student-friendly format, ignites a desire to learn more about a rewarding and prestigious career path.”

The three-day Mini-Med School programme courses will include:

  • Medicine as a Global Career

  • Need for Doctors in emerging countries like India

  • Introduction to Medical Instruments and Devices

  • Introduction to Heart and Cardiovascular system

  • Understanding the Nervous System

  • Introduction to Lungs and the Pulmonary System

  • First Aid, Triage and Suturing

The registration fee of Rs 5000 for the 3-day programme includes all classroom fees and lunch each day. The programme starts 12 June and runs through 14 June at Legacy School in Bangalore.

Salil Gupta, South Asia Regional Manager for St. George’s University is enthusiastic about bringing this successful medical school preview programme to India.

This programme is perfect for those who may not have a physician as a member of their family, “ said Gupta. “While there is a lot of interest in medicine as a career choice for their children among parents, navigating the path to medical school and then on to practicing can be confusing. The Mini-Med School programme exposes students to the exciting and challenging career options that are present in the noble profession of medicine.”
