    Sensorium: Enhancing the World of Perception

    Return to campus and join fellow alumni for a full day of education and camaraderie! This year's program will focus on our senses and what Stanford Medicine is doing to protect, enhance, and in some cases, even restore them.  

    This year, we proudly celebrate reunions with the classes of 1949, 1954, 1959, 1964, 1969, 1974, 1979, 1984, 1989, 1994, 1999, 2004, 2009, and 2014!

  • Art and Anatomy: Florence

    An Exclusive Program for Stanford School of Medicine Alumni

    To be an artist during the Italian Renaissance was, in many cases, to be an anatomist. As European artists turned towards more lifelike depictions of the human body in their paintings and sculptures, they required a deeper understanding of how the structures of the body worked together. Artists and anatomists joined forces to investigate the body through dissection and produced images of the human form that combined medical knowledge with artistic vision and creativity.

    On this inaugural Stanford Travel/Study program designed exclusively for the Stanford Medicine community, we’ll explore the incredible history and relics of this unique relationship between art and science in the cradle of the Renaissance: Florence. Get an in-depth look at the special collections of some of the city’s most unique museums, hear from renowned experts on the history of anatomy and art in the Renaissance, try your hand at anatomical and figure drawing both in studio and on location, and enjoy an exclusive private viewing of Michelangelo’s David at the Galleria dell’Accademia. We will also visit nearby Bologna to see 18th-century anatomical treasures and the site of the oldest medical school in Europe.

    This will be a trip full of memories for a lifetime!
