Little Medical School inspires health awareness through education, by providing children with hands-on, interactive activities, that promote careers in healthcare.
Little Medical School has a wide variety of programs to meet the needs of young minds and inspire a lifelong love of learning about healthy bodies and the fascinating professions of medicine. Through camps, birthday parties, after-school enrichment programs, classes, in-school presentations, and scouting events, we encourage children to role play while learning about the human body and being medical professionals.
Little Medical School (LMS) is deeply rooted in Founder Dr. Mary Mason’s love of family, medicine, and education. In 1998, Dr. Mason wrote her first lesson plan and enlisted her medical residents to teach local teenagers. This passion for encouraging careers in healthcare culminated in the creation of LMS in 2010. Today, the company is a pioneer and leading developer of specialized curriculum and interactive resources for children aged 4-14.
We offer summer camps, after-school programs, in-school field trips, birthday parties, scout badge classes, and special events that we can customize to fit your needs.
We offer a wide variety of programs including Veterinarian (dog and cat programs currently available with more animals to come), Pediatrician, Internal Medicine, Sports Medicine, Wilderness Medicine, Pharmacy, Nursing, Dental, and so many more. Our courses are designed for elementary and middle school aged children and are specifically tailored to each age groups needs and abilities.
LMS of Greater Chicago works with educators, healthcare leaders, and community organizations to INSPIRE healthy lifestyles in children as they learn about the exciting world of medicine and medical careers. Our LMS Trained Instructors are also community members – these individuals range from aspiring world changers, practicing medical providers, and accomplished educators. All programs are written and reviewed by board-certified physicians and experienced educators.
