Speaking on the aim of organising mini-med, Lily Phommarack said: “It's imperative for prospective medical students to gain an insight into their chosen field before making any decisions about their higher education. Therefore, the primary objective of the “Mini-Med” course is to give students an in-depth perspective about what to expect while they are being trained to be a doctor and to envision themselves embarking on a global career in medicine”.
