High schoolers share thoughts from Stanford's Med School 101

Scenes from this year's Med School 101: In the video above, three high-school students describe their interests in science and the sessions they attended at Stanford Medicine's recent daylong event for local teens. One of the presenters, Anand Veeravagu, MD, also weighed in, saying: "I really wanted to share with them my journey from graduating high school all the way to being a neurosurgery resident and what that involves." (A lot of training!)

For those interested in seeing more, images from the event can be found on our Flickr photo set.
