Reflecting on week 2 and looking ahead to week 3

reflection and looking forward to the next week

Great job completing week 2!

We began this week in the digestive tract. Then we learned about the musculoskeletal and hematopoietic systems. We ended with the nervous system and a broad look at our human senses. Participants should be able to summarize the symptoms of the diseases discussed.

You are about to start the third and final week of Mini Medical School: Introduction to Medical Science! In this final week, we will focus on cellular and molecular biology and genetics. When you are finished, we hope you will feel more confident in your interactions with medical professionals in the future.

See you in week 3!
