Mini-Med School for Kids

In 2008, the University of Maryland School of Medicine (UMSOM) expanded its Mini-Med School program to serve children. In collaboration with the Salvation Army’s Franklin Square Boys and Girls Club summer camp, for five consecutive weeks UMSOM faculty teach about health and encourage campers to consider careers in science and medicine.
