How it all began
It all began in 1998, where our founder Dr. Mason wrote her first lesson and entrusted her medical residents to teach local teenagers. Her passion for encouraging kids & teens about the healthcare field culminated in the creation of Little Medical School in 2010. Today, Little Medical School is a leader in specialized STEM curriculum and interactive programs for kids & teens.
Since then, we have grown so much! Because we believe in highlighting the diversity and creativity in all healthcare fields, we offer our summer camps, after-school programs, in-school field trips, live virtual classes, birthday parties, and scout badge classes to feature over 8 different fields in medicine including:
All in the Mid-South area!
Imagination: We believe children need to dream and have opportunities to discover.
Nurturing: We create environments to learn and explore while building self-confidence.
Service: We realize love of medicine requires a commitment to helping others.
Passion: We are energized by our desire to share our love of learning and health.
Innovation: We engage all by merging entertainment and education.
Role-playing: We realize the power of one-on-one AND group interaction.
Educational: We develop unique curriculum to highlight career options.
While all seven values above form the foundation of why we exist and how we conduct business, our most important function is to INSPIRE a greater understanding of health and career options.
