About Us

Maybe you have chosen to go to law school or enter the business world. Perhaps you just overslept and missed chemistry class or played too much Frisbee on the quad. For whatever reason, like most people, you didn't go to medical school. Still think you've got what it takes? In 1997, Harry Sultz, DDS, MPH, Professor and Dean Emeritus and Alan M. Reynard, PhD, Professor, Pharmacology & Toxicology of the University at Buffalo began a Mini-Medical School for people without a medical background.

Participants won't graduate with a license to practice, but they will become immersed in medical science and do it in the company of some of UB's of leading physicians and researchers. Mini-Medical School lectures are similar to those offered to UB medical students.

Enrollment in the Mini-Medical School is limited to the first 300 registrants. All the lectures take place from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm in 150 Farber Hall, Butler Auditorium on the Main Street South Campus.

* A Community Service Program of the School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences, University at Buffalo, The State University of New York
