MHC Kids: Mini-Medical School

AboutVolunteer  |  Host  |  Partners  |  Testimonials


“The learning and education opportunity given by Mini-Medical was a win-win for both elementary students and our MSUCOM medical students. We were shown that today’s children are eager to learn about futures in medicine and Mini-Medical school has stepped in to help. The program offers a great overview of the importance of health and wellness that is easily grasped by curious minds. It was a pleasure to have worked with the kids of Ferndale Lower Elementary!”

“The Mini-Medical School offers elementary students meaningful hands-on exposure to the amazing opportunities that are available in the medical field.  Our students and staff look forward to participating each year.”

“Thank you again for your work and that of the volunteer team. The principal, staff, our volunteers and most importantly, the children really enjoyed the program yesterday.

Here’s what a parent said on the parent page: ‘Both my girls absolutely loved this assembly, Mary! It’s all they talked about when they got home. Mrs. Keefe gushed about it at the PTA meeting tonight too.’


Looking forward to working again with you and MHC!”

“I just wanted to say thank you again for coming to UPSM yesterday. I have had so many teachers and students come up to me and tell me how much fun they had, all the things they had learned, how organized everything was, and how well the MSU students interacted with the kids. 

Thank you so much for all your positive attitudes and enthusiasm throughout a very long, hectic day. Everything was done with excellence and we appreciate the care and attention you gave to all of our scholars. 


Many students (especially in 5th grade) told me they felt special being greeted in the tunnel and they could see themselves being a doctor or working in the medical field after putting on the white coats and using the various equipment. There were literally BEAMING.”

Thanks again for all the love you poured out to our kids and for making it a memorable experience for them. Thanks for the taking the time you could have used to do a million other things to invest in and inspire our kids. You have no idea the impact you made yesterday!”

“From all of us here at Lansing Parks & Recreation, we want to thank you for your participation in the 2018 Summer Camp program. Your contribution and dedication towards our program allowed us to offer unique and enriching experiences to our campers. We’re able to continue to provide these opportunities because of support from groups like Mini-Medical School. All of the children enjoyed being able to learn more about being health and their futures! We look forward to continuing working together in the future.”
