Whiz Kids: Developing a program for "young anatomists"

As regular readers have seen over the last week, I've been highlighting projects from the the Clinical Anatomy Research Scholars (CARS) program at Stanford. That program allowed 15 interns to come campus this summer to do research alongside faculty in a variety of fields across biomedicine.

Those students also produced YouTube videosĀ on their work and entered them in NPR's "What's Your Big Idea?" contest. In this video, Ruby Moreno, an incoming Stanford undergraduate student, explains the program she developed to teach middle school students about anatomy.

The CARS program is based in the Division of Clinical Anatomy and is directed by W. Paul Brown, DDS.
