An Inside Look

Join Us!

For over 20 years, UB Mini Med School has been providing the Western New York community with an inside look at the medical school experience through lectures on a wide variety of compelling medical subjects. Each session offers participants exposure to the expertise that positions UB squarely at the center of health care in Buffalo and the region.

Lectures—which are geared toward the layperson and presented by UB’s leading physicians and researchers—take place on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-8:00 p.m. Click here for a full list of topics and speakers for the 2017-18 series.

Butler Auditorium is located on the corner of Bailey Avenue and Sherman Road (across from the VA Hospital), offering easy access and plenty of parking.

UB Mini Med School is a public service education initiative of the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at UB, as well as UB’s Schools of Dentistry, Nursing, Pharmacy, and Public Health. Programs are designed for ages 16 and older, and each lecture costs $5 to attend (free with a valid UB or high school student ID). To register, simply click on this link.

Thank you for sharing our enthusiasm for this program. We look forward to seeing you at our upcoming sessions.
