Med School 101
High school students examine brain tissue samples at the School of Medicine under the guidance of Huong Ha (center), a doctoral student in the Stanford neurosciences program.
The students were among 140 local high schoolers who participated in Med School 101, an annual, daylong event designed to expose young minds to medicine and related fields. The hands-on, interactive sessions and lectures focus on diverse range of subjects, including biodesign, virtual anatomy, neurosciecne, cancer and sleep. The event is organzied by the medical school's Office of Communication & Public Affaris and is sponsored by Stanford Hospital & Clinics.
Stanford Medicine integrates research, medical education and health care at its three institutions - Stanford University School of Medicine, Stanford Health Care (formerly Stanford Hospital & Clinics), and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford.
