On Friday, around 140 students from ten local high schools will once again come to the Stanford campus for our annual Med School 101 event.
This is the eighth year of the event, which is organized by the medical school's Office of Communication & Public Affairs and sponsored by Stanford Hospital & Clinics and was designed to expose high-school students to medicine and related fields. 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, including disease-causing bacteria, food allergies, and traumatic brain injury.
We'll be live tweeting two of the sessions: a talk on sleep and related disorders from one of our leading experts, and a discussion on what it really takes to get into medical school from Charles Prober, MD, Stanford's senior associate dean of medical education. You can follow the coverage beginning at 9 AM Pacific time on the @SUMedicine feed or by using the hashtag #SUMed101.
