Company Profile Of The Week: Little Medical School

How can you get children to aspire for careers in health care such as medicine, nursing, pharmacy, dental and veterinarian medicine? That’s the mission of the founder of Little Medical School, Mary Mason MD, MBA, FACP. Her innovative educational company creates mini-medical, nursing, pharmacy, dental and veterinarian school experiences for children ages 3-14. Through hands-on demonstrations, crafts and games, children are actively engaged as they explore the world of healthcare. A retail line of award-winning educaonal kits and products was launched in 2017, created in response to demand from family parcipants of the Lile Medical School locaons. A percentage of proceeds of the new line will be donated to the Dr. Genie’s Kids Foundaon. The Foundaon provides scholarships for children to be exposed to the many healthcare career paths. Dr. Mason is a mother of three, all of whom she proudly notes aended Lile Medical School! If clothes make the man, than a white lab coat and stethoscope around the neck of a 5-year-old will certainly make a child feel like their favorite pediatrician or veterinarian. My Heart and Lungs kit, available by Spring 2018, is full of kid-friendly worksheets, mazes, and word searches. In addion to the sturdy coat and stethoscope, there’s a 20-page workbook where prospecve physicians can design their own medical office! Now that’s forward thinking!

“The ‘mini-medical school journey’ for kids,” explains Dr. Mary Mason, founder of Little Medical School, “offers a wondrous array of fun and exciting props and activities through which children explore the world of medicine, science, health and role-playing. Our kits promote social development, cooperation, teamwork, creativity and problem-solving skills.”

Expect My Heart and Lungs kit to also expand a youngster’s vocabulary with cardiovascular and respiratory sprinkled into the dinner conversaon! Kids will become familiar with the thump-thump beat of the heart and be able to locate their diaphragm (and yours if you ask them). Folks who live near one of the 40-plus markets that boast Lile Medical School classes are already familiar with the company and its STEM curriculum. The company has even expanded to Canada and the Middle East!

The company went “retail” in 2017 with the launch of three kits – Pediatrician, Veterinarian and Sports Medicine. In the last year, toy industry judges gushed as soon as they opened each box! The result was over a dozen accolades including Parents’ Choice Award, The National Parenting Center, Tillywig Brain Child, Creative Child Magazine, Hot Diggity Award and more.

“Everything in the kit is well made, the white coat in particular,” reviewed The National Parenting Center in one of their three glowing appraisals. “This is not your standard costume white coat. It has the look and feel of a true doctor’s coat and it is even embroidered with “Little Medical School” above the pocket…What parents appreciated most was the comprehensive workbook that walks children through every step of the process— from adopting their pet, learning that “nose to tail” exam, even making healthy pretend treats out of Play Doh. This kit is a great product for children who love to role play and especially those who love animals.”

My Heart and Lungs Kit • $49.95 • Ages 5+. In a heartbeat kids will be amazed by what they discover about their bodies from their nose to their belly buon. Like other Lile Medical School edutainment kits, this one offers age-appropriate acvies. Mazes, worksheets, word searches and an answer key to the 20-page workbook are included. The white cloth coat and stethoscope — with a body sound device — makes this kit a memorable birthday present or a powerful back-to-school incenve to study math and science.

My Little Sports Medicine Kit • Ages 5+ • $49.95. Updated for 2018, this kit is perfect for youngsters 5 to 8 years old. The enclosed workbook is newly designed.
