Mini Medical School Experience for Middle School Students - October 11, 2020
Complete this form to apply for Dr. Rubin's Mini Medical School program for Middle School Students Program which is scheduled for October 11th at the Edward Elmhurst Plainfield Outpatient Center
The Middle School Program covers 90% of what we do in the high school program but at a lower level of detail. The video below was in 2011 (pre pandemic) but demonstrates what we will cover.
In 2005, Dr. Rubin started his Mini Med School for High School Students program. Sixteen years later, he is created a program for Middle School Students. This form is only for middle school students interested in learning about medicine and surgery. The program offers an overview of what students learn in Med School at the level of an advanced high school student. Due to the COVID 19 pandemic, we did not offer this program last summer. However, were able to adapt our High School Summer Mini Med Experience and we are now willing and able to do the same for Middle School Students. To reduce the spread of COVID, we have adapted our program by making the following changes: 1. All lectures were recorded and will be streamed directly to your student's computer. 2. The class size has been reduced to 2 pods of 8 students (a total of 16 students in 2 rooms) who will be in session for doing our hands on experiences. We will run one AM and one PM session. For those students who for heath reasons or for fear of COVID, we are making a video of all experiences in the first person view for them to watch and experience as if they were actually performing the procedures. If a lot more students sign up than we have space for, we may run the program again this year. The program will be held on October 11th from 8:45 AM to 12: 30 PM and repeated for an afternoon session at 1:30 PM to 5:30 PM at the Edward Elmhurst Plainfield Outpatient Center located at 24600 W 127th St Building A, Plainfield, IL 60585 Students will receive on Oct 3 an email containing 6 links. They are instructed to view one or two sessions per night and complete the viewing by Oct 10th. Then, each student will meet on Oct 11th for their in person hands on experiences in small pods of 8 students. The students will be in a seminar room that normally seats 88 people. They will be required to wear a mask, gloves and physically distance at 6 or more feet at all times. Students will not be allowed to congregate at any time. All students will be screened by infrared temperatures and a set of questions designed to screen for any COVID infection. The application to attend the program is simple. Complete this form and mail or drop off a parent consent with a check attached for the program fee. This fee covers all medical supplies needed during the program and a program certificate. The program fee is $250 and payable to Dr Rubin's Mini Medical School. Acceptance is offered on a first come first served basis once we have all three parts of your application ( this form, parent consent and the program fee). If a student is accepted and then decides to drop out for any reason, he or she will be refunded $200 provided that we are notified by October 1, 2020. If we are not able to run the program due to the pandemic, we will offer the students an alternative date or a full refund. Since we did not run this program last summer, we are allowing current 9th graders to participate.
