The first round was such a huge success that it is back for a Fall session. Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center's Community Medical School starts this Tuesday and runs every Tuesday after that for the next 7 weeks.
Whether you are 18 or 80, this is a chance for you to learn about health care and medicine in a fun and interactive way.
"We'll be covering topics like pregnancy, about how your medications are metabolized in your body, prostate disease, a lot of the very common problems that people face in healthcare. We'd like to have everyone who can possibly come, regardless of age. We had a lot of students last year, a lot of teachers, a lot of people from retirement communities. The general public is very welcome," says TTUHSC President Dr. John Baldwin.
Community Medical School goes from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesday nights, but on the first night, you might arrive at 5 p.m. to sign up. You do not have to attend every session but the course is 7 weeks long.
Just go to the Academic Building of The Texas Tech Health Sciences Center, which faces 4th Street near Indiana. Health care students will be waiting outside to help you park and find your way into class. The cost is $25, and it includes all of the classes, materials, and a certificate of completion.
