Live tweeting sessions at Stanford's Med School 101

Live tweeting sessions at Stanford's Med School 101

Tomorrow, around 140 students from ten local high schools will arrive on the Stanford campus to participate in our annual Med School 101 event.

Designed to expose high-school students to medicine and related fields, the event is organized by the medical school’s Office of Communication & Public Affairs and sponsored by Stanford Hospital & Clinics. At the day-long gathering, students will attend sessions at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge on a range of medical and scientific topics. They’ll hear from some of the country’s top experts and get the opportunity to engage in hands-on activities such as performing surgery on simulated patients.

We’ll be live tweeting sessions from Josef Parvizi, MD, PhD, associate professor of neurology and neurological sciences; Gilbert Chu, MD, PhD, professor of oncology; Sakti Srivastava, MD, associate professor of surgery, and other event happenings throughout the day. You can follow the coverage beginning at 9 AM Pacific time on the @SUMedicine feed or by using the hashtag #SUMed101.
