The University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire and Mayo Clinic Health System have teamed up to create a program that educates people about the medical field. This program, which takes place over 6 consecutive Mondays at UW-EC, is open to a wide range of individuals, from high school and college students to working adults and retirees.

Dr. Timothy Young from Mayo Clinic Health System highlighted the inclusivity of the program, emphasizing that all are welcome to participate. No prior medical knowledge is assumed for participants, and the program is designed to start with basic concepts and gradually build on them to provide a comprehensive understanding of the medical field.

Each week of the program will focus on a different topic, with interactive activities aimed at providing participants with a realistic glimpse into medical education. The ultimate goal of the program is to give people a taste of medical school and help them determine if pursuing a career in medicine is the right path for them.

Dr. Julie Anderson, Director of UW-EC’s Health Careers Center, expressed excitement about the program and the opportunities it will offer to students. Through this collaboration with Mayo Clinic Health System, students have access to a range of opportunities, including job shadowing, research opportunities, and more unique and exciting opportunities like this medical academy program.

The program begins on April 1st, and more information on registration will be available on the program’s website. Overall, this collaboration between UW-Eau Claire and Mayo Clinic Health System aims to provide an enriching and educational experience for individuals interested in pursuing careers in healthcare.
