    Mini Medical School on Women's Health

    First offered in 1995, the Mini Medical School on Women’s Health is a one-day series of lectures on a variety of women’s health concerns. Dr. Bruce Fuchs at the University of Virginia School of Medicine developed the first Mini Medical School with the intent of offering the public some of the basic facts of medicine experienced by first-year medical students. In 1995 John Niebauer, M.D., former chairman of Orthopedics for California Pacific Medical Center, initiated the first ever West Coast mini medical school, jointly sponsored by the College of Marin and CPMC.

    From managing the midlife transition to getting a better night’s sleep, our lectures present clinical examples and physicians’ insights on women’s health concerns. Each year, our impressive speakers are selected based on their dedication and commitment to education. Please join us for this unique and progressive educational program.

    The Women’s Health Resource Center of California Pacific Medical Center is proud to sponsor this community educational program on women’s health. One element of the Women’s Health Resource Center’s mission is to bring information to women on improving and understanding issues surrounding their health, and to encourage women to be responsible for and proud of their self care.
