2023 Stanford Healthcare Tri-Valley Clinical Academy

This year, the Stanford Tri-Valley Clinical Academy had 41 students participate in the program, held in Livermore from July 17 to July 28.

More than two dozen physicians and other healthcare providers from the Tri-Valley area joined us to offer the students both didactic and hands-on learning sessions. They learned about various specialties including Internal Medicine, Pulmonology, Gastroenterology, Allergy & Immunology, Emergency Medicine, Anesthesia, Urology, General Surgery, and others. Students had the opportunity to become BLS certified, perform simulated colonoscopies, perform brain and heart & lung dissections, practice suturing and knot tying, sit at the console of the surgical robot, perform extremity splinting, and many others.  They had an overview of the pathway to becoming a physician as well as many other healthcare professions, such as physician assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists, speech therapists, and nurses.

The Stanford Tri-Valley Clinical Academy is a great opportunity for high school students to learn more about the field of medicine and healthcare.
