Welcome Message


Welcome to Baystate Medical Center’s Mini-Medical School. We are pleased to offer this unique Mini-Medical School to our community. An outstanding group of faculty members will present information about surgery, emergency medicine, anesthesiology, aging, cardiology and other important topics.

The goal of our Mini-Medical School is to bring together physicians and people of the community so that we may share knowledge about medicine in an open and comfortable forum. The program helps you to make more informed decisions about all aspects of health care while receiving insight on what it is like to be a medical school student.  Our faculty, staff and medical students are excited to share with you what goes on at Baystate Medical Center.

There won't be any tests in these classes and although you won’t walk away with a license to practice medicine, you will get a certificate and a better understanding of medical education and some current medical topics.

We hope you find the program enjoyable and informative.
