Canada should anticipate a resurgence of a childhood respiratory virus as COVID-19 physical distancing measures are relaxed, according to BC Children's Hospital researchers in their commentary in CMAJ (Canadian Medical Association Journal).
Participate in Mini Med School when it works for you! On-Demand participants will be emailed the link for accessing Mini Med School presentations after the live sessions each week.
Mini Med School On-Demand is a recording of the Mini Med School Live session held earlier in the week; it is not in real-time. Students participating On-Demand will not have the opportunity to engage or ask questions directly to the presenters. Participating On-Demand is like watching a video on YouTube.

- Session #2: Friday, October 15 to Sunday, October 24
- Session #3: Friday, October 22 to Sunday, October 31

The Mini Med School course curriculum has been designed for a senior high school audience. With only 4 evenings to explore new scientific concepts, participants should expect a fast-paced virtual learning environment. Similar to a postsecondary seminar, Mini Med School is lecture-based with content building on previously introduced ideas. Some students may find this format challenging, so we encourage you to consider your preferred learning style before deciding to participate.
Those interested in attending Mini Med School On-Demand must register as per the Registration Guidelines below.
