Victoria Clague

Assistant Professor

Dr. Clague recieved her B.A. and M.P.H at UC Berkley & her M.D from Stanford. She did her internship at UCSF and completed her radiology residency/fellowship at Brigham and Women's Hospital.

Dr. Clague is a fellow ship trained abdominal radiologist.  Her current work at Kaiser is in her speciality which includes abdominal and pelvic CT, MRI, ultrasound and whole body PET/CT imaging. Dr. Clague loves abdominal imaging because abdominal pain is often a very nonspecific clinical finding, so that imaging often plays a significant role in diagnosing and treating patients.  Dr. Clague enjoys being able to make diagnoses that help clinicians better manage patients.

A note from Dr. Clague: 

"I was myself a student at Stanford and loved Anatomy.  It was while I was an anatomy TA that I was introduced to radiology as a specialty.  The overlap between anatomy and imaging is very strong for me - I can’t imagine someone loving radiology that didn’t love anatomy!  I found radiology a natural fit for me - I am a very visual person and able to see things in the imaging planes.   I came to teaching from a desire to share this view of radiology with students in the first year anatomy course. I wanted them to see how they could translate this anatomy knowledge from the course to seeing those same structures in the living patients through imaging."

Bruce Fogel

Adjunct Professor

Dr. Fogel received his D.D.S. from the UCLA School of Dentistry and his Certificate in Endodontics from the Harvard University School of Dental Medicine and the Forsyth Institute.  He has an extensive background in private clinical practice and has taught at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry where he was a Clinical Associate Professor and Director of Endodontic Surgical Services and as a Consultant at the Palo Alto Veterans Administration Hospital.

Before joining the Stanford faculty, he developed 3D interactive active software to teach human anatomy.  Presently, he develops, directs, and teaches undergraduate, medical school, and outreach courses.  He emphasizes the clinical relevance of anatomy as it pertains to the treatment of traumatic and pathological conditions.

Lauren Toomer

Lecturer

Lauren A. Toomer studied art and anatomy while obtaining her MFA in Art Practice at Stanford University. She received a BA from the University of California, Berkeley, summa cum laude. Toomer has lectured at Stanford since 2015 and remains committed to advancing the field of medical humanities and visual art. She has a full-time joint lecturing appointment at Stanford University. She lectures in the Departments of Art and Art History, Surgery, and Anesthesiology at Stanford University.
