Tyree Taylor selected to participate in High School Mini Medical School

Tyree Taylor, a senior football student-athlete at Raytown South High School, was among only 100 students selected from the State of Missouri for participation in the University of Missouri School of Medicine’s High School Mini Medical School (HSMMS) in Columbia, MO.

The program, now in its 16th year, is designed to give high school seniors who are already interested in medical careers a one-week preview of medical school.  This is a unique experience for students that have shown the capacity to benefit from the program. Tyree was chosen out of hundreds of applicants from across the State through a selective process which included a competitive application process and a personal essay.

During the session, Tyree will participate in a medical-school style curriculum, which includes problem-based learning, a method of teaching that combines independent learning in small groups with patient care cases.  Students will also participate in sessions with clinical and research specialists; gain hands-on experience in anatomy, microbiology and clinical skills; interact with medical school students, faculty and staff; and attend seminars on college and medical school life.  In addition, students will live on-campus and participate in various social activities to give a full real life experience to medical school life and college campus living.
