Do you remember what you wanted to be when you grew up? Ignite your child's passion for science today! Children of all ages enjoy our educational enrichment programs because we create an opportunity to experience role playing using tools that real doctors, pharmacists, nurses, and veterinarians use. By participating in these role-playing experiences, Little Medical School is inspiring tomorrow’s doctors today!
What started out as a concept that connected medical students and residents with the community and kids, has developed into an educational program that inspires children to pursue a career in the medical field. Mary Mason, CEO of Little Medical School, came up with the concept in 1999 while working on her MBA at Washington University and before she started her Chief Resident year for Internal Medicine. Mason's mother was a pediatrician and was always coming up with fun activities to get her daughters interested in medicine. Many of these activities were inspirations for Little Medical School classes.
In 2011, we started with Little Medical School, Little Pharmacy School, and Little Nursing School. Accompanying those today are Little Veterinarian School, Sports Medicine, Wilderness Medicine, Pediatrician School, and, coming in 2019, Little Nutrition School. Our curriculum is a creative and engaging platform for teaching science in a homeschool setting.
Our vision is for EVERY child to discover how the body works, understand the importance of health, and to explore what career opportunities are available to them in healthcare.
We truly hope you see the value in our programs and provide us the opportunity to share our passion for medicine and science with your children, through our fun, innovative, and engaging curriculum.
