5th Annual ONSF Mini-Med School
Posted On: Friday, June 30, 2017

From June 26th to June 29th, 16 high school students, representing 10 different schools had the “ultimate” hands-on experience in the world of medicine, while attending the 5th Annual ONSF Mini-Med School. The Mini-Med School took place at the ONSF Arthroscopy, Surgical Skills and Biomechanical Research Lab at 6 Greenwich Office Park in Greenwich, CT.

A series of labs, interactive activities, lectures and surgical simulations were featured. Students learned first-hand from orthopedic and neurosurgical physicians, not only about musculoskeletal disorders but also more broadly about a career in medicine. In addition, students participated in workshops that included casting, suturing, scrubbing, the operating room environment, and ultrasound.

This year’s ONSF Mini-Med School program included students from Rye, NY; New Canaan, Greenwich and Stamford, CT; Durham, NH and Brooklyn, NY.

Mini-Med School creates an amazing mentor/student event that has the potential to change a young person’s life.
