Northwestern Memorial chosen to be featured in first-ever mini-med school TV airing on PBS

A chance for television viewers to spend a half-hour learning from two of the world's leading surgeons is the concept behind Mini-Med School TV, which debuts nationally on PBS in 2005. Northwestern Memorial Hospital was selected to be solely featured in the first two episodes, "Hi-Tech Brain Repair" and "Lifesaving Heart Repair."

Mini-Med Schools are educational programs taught at teaching hospital across the country, providing a unique opportunity for the general public to learn from the nation's top physicians just like medical students. First introduced in 1990, today many hospitals have five-year waiting lists for these sessions and they continue to grow in popularity thus inspiring producers at PBS to create Mini-Med School TV.

"The fact that Mini-Med Schools are flourishing and thousands of people across the country are registering, demonstrated to us the public's hunger for medical knowledge. By producing a television version of Mini-Med School, we're able to offer millions of viewers the opportunity to learn from the country's most renowned physicians," explains Marci Rubin, executive producer for Mini-Med School TV.

"Hi-Tech Brain Repair" is hosted by Hunt Batjer, M.D., chair of the Department of Neurological Surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital and Professor of Neurosurgery at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. Batjer is an international leader in cerebrovascular surgery, especially renowned for his skill in treating complex aneurysms.

"Lifesaving Heart Repair" is hosted by Patrick McCarthy, M.D., chief of Cardiothoracic Surgery at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, co-director of the Northwestern Cardiovascular Institute, and Professor of Surgery at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine. Dr. McCarthy is an internationally acclaimed cardiac surgeon recently recruited to NMH from the Cleveland Clinic to help build the Northwestern Cardiovascular Institute and launch NMH in
