GREENWICH, Conn. -- Fifteen students from schools in Greenwich recently took part in the ONS Foundation for Clinical Research and Education's 3rd Annual Mini-Med School.

The ONSF Arthroscopy, Surgical Skills and Biomechanical Research Lab provided an ideal mentor/student atmosphere, according to a press release. The students enthusiastically embraced the opportunity to participate in a “hands-on” experience, a one week workshop in orthopedics, according to the release.

This year’s students represented Greenwich Academy, Greenwich High School, Brunswick School, Sacred Heart Academy and Poly Prep School and demonstrated an interest in careers in medicine or were enrolled in a STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) program, according to the release.

Doctors discussed orthopedic problems, physical examination and diagnosis and students spent two sessions in a casting workshop, and participated in lectures and a workshop that dealt exclusively with suturing, according to the release.

Student Jessica Liu wrote that she had “…a truly rewarding experience… I learned so much from the doctors’ experiences …strengthening my strong desire to become a doctor and pursue a career in medicine,” according to the release
