Sports Medicine

Sports offer so much more than a fun way to play outside. At Little Medical School, sports are a gateway to learning and the fascinating world of Sports Medicine. In this six-hour course, we use interactive tools and activities to teach students the basics of the popular medical field. They learn about reflexes and responses times – even get their own reflex hammer to keep! They learn about common sports injuries and how to treat them, about hands and joints, and in a class favorite lesson they’ll learn about and get to perform a Tommy John surgery

Our sports medicine course was designed by a team of board-certified physicians and is led by a trained and background-checked instructor passionate about sharing medical knowledge with aspiring young learners. Watch your child beam with pride when he or she earns a diploma on graduation day
