A new program in Baltimore is planting the seeds for youth to become tomorrow’s healthcare providers. CBS News’ Nikole Killion interviewed several participants from the Little Medical School of Baltimore, operated by Marion Beck. LMS Baltimore is a STEM enrichment program that focuses on exposing kids to various healthcare professions and it appears the program aim of inspiring youth is working based on what these children had to say.
Little Medical School incorporates the use of role-playing and fun, interactive demonstrations with academic theory allowing children to simulate medical school experiences. These children learned how the body and organs work, learn to use medical tools to assess patients, apply first aid procedures, practice suturing and much more. These kids clearly learned a lot while having a great time.
The innovative, hands-on curriculum was developed by a team of Board Certified Physicians, along with experienced Child Educators, and is designed to actively engage and inspire young minds. All of the programs are as fun as they are educational, and support current initiative of STEAM-science, technology, engineering, art, math—education. It’s definitely edutainment! And effective.
