Reflecting on the Course

Week 4 Reflection

Congratulations!! You have completed all four weeks of Mini Medical School: Hot Topics in Medical Science. We hope you now have a better understanding of these important topics in the world of medicine today.

From week four specifically, we hope you have gained the ability to describe different treatment options for cancer, summarize lifestyle changes that can lower your risk for cancer, and investigate resources available to learn more about cancer and clinical trials.

Thank you for taking this medical journey! Reflect on the information gained in this course and how it will impact your interaction with medical professionals in the future. You now have the tools and the skillset to summarize key concepts surrounding immunology, infectious disease, neuroscience, and cancer biology. Your deeper understanding of these topics should help you in discussing how to make well-informed decisions about illness, wellness, and life-style choices.

We hope you had fun learning and engaging with us, and we hope to see you again in future courses. If you haven’t already, we encourage you take our first course, Mini Medical School: Introduction to Medical Science.
