Griffin Hospital is accepting registrations for its free 10-week “Mini-Med School” course that begins Thursday, Sept. 13.

The free course, which will be conducted by Griffin Hospital physicians who serve as faculty, will meet Thursdays from 6:30 to 9 p.m. in the hospital’s Meditation and Learning Center.
