All eight of us are proud parents of UMKC Medical School Graduates. Our particular interest in attending Mini-Med was to experience and understand in some small way more about medicine and what our children learned in their classes. Our enjoyment has far surpassed any expectations we had. The people we met, the stories we heard, the research revealed, and especially the patients we will never forget. Thank you again.

Mini-Med Schools I, II and III; Interests, education, curiosity. My personal physician can't fool me anymore; I’ll take him my green manual, to show I know the score. Diseases, ailments, intruders to our fate; The programs from Dr. Wichelman are definitely first-rate.

Thanks for your efforts and the enjoyable sessions.
