Registration now open for Medicine X 2017

If you haven’t experienced the magic of Stanford’s Medicine X — known as the world’s most-discussed academic medical conference — here’s your chance. Registration is now open for this three-day event, which runs Sept. 15-17.

What makes this medical conference so special? You do.

As MedX founder and anesthesiologist Larry Chu, MD, says at the opening of every event, Medicine X is built on a framework of mutual respect and inclusivity. This Everyone Included™  ideology — the belief that, "everyone should be respected for the expertise they can bring" — is one of the hallmarks of MedX, and it permeates every presentation, demo, breakout session and panel discussion at the event.

This year's conference will focus on the theme of "Citizenship" as it explores topics related to digital health, challenges and opportunities in medicine, ePatients, research, business, design and more in around 200 breakout sessions and main stage talks.
