Advanced Biology, Human Diseases and Biomedical Careers In-Class Program (Nationwide)


This hands-on two semester daily course prepares students for the rigor of advanced biology (anatomy, physiology) and features pathology and health/science careers.

The course incorporates up-to-date biomedical topics including sections on current health issues such as cancer, precision medicine, aging and more. Students practice advanced study strategies, learn about the eleven organ systems, perform organ dissections, take trips, meet health/science professionals, learn life-saving skills, complete two capstone projects, review scientific publications and host a health and science fair.

MIM provides the curriculum with materials and trains the schools’ science teachers, who in turn instruct the students.

MIM After School Program (Nationwide)


Our in-school program engages students in health and science through hands-on activities. It features a bio-medically inspired STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) curriculum along with a capstone project and student-produced health and science fair.

Each 8-10 week session features one organ system that serves as the basis for learning. The program includes using technology, cartooning, guided dissections, a health/science professional classroom visit, field trips and save-a-life. Classes are delivered after school, during lunch or on Saturdays.

Instruction is by an MIM certified pre-health college, medical or graduate student. Students receive a certificate of completion and compete for prizes as part of the program.  Programs are customized to the needs of the sponsor.

MIM Health and Science Day


MIM hosts an all-day, full-immersion event at your school where students and educators experience the magic of health and science.    


The MIM team offers carefully designed seminars, workshops, hands-on programs and guided discussion groups to enhance learning and spark interest. Features include an “Ask the Experts Activities Fair”, “speed mentoring”, research competitions, hands-on CPR and other workshops and a pep rally. 


In addition to being hosted in Harlem, NY for eight years, The Health and Science Expo has been replicated in seven other markets since 2012 including Detroit, MI, New Orleans, LA, Philadelphia, PA, Oakland, CA, Billings, MT, Atlanta, GA, Long Island, NY and Columbus, OH.

Hip-Hop Health and Science Stage Play


This high energy production is called Morgan’s Big Biology Test Play. Through group participation and hands-on activities, students (middle school to post-graduate) learn the structure, function and diseases of the cardiovascular system.


Participants join in an adventure with a student named Morgan to help her study for an upcoming Biology Test and to understand the heart and healthy living habits. After the play, students reinforce learning through a guided pig heart demonstration, a stethoscope workshop, hands-only CPR and networking with health and science professionals. The Hip Hop Stage Play has been performed in NYC, Detroit, MI, Atlanta, GA and Little Rock, AK.
