Last month, a group of 150 Bay Area high-school students visited Stanford to attend a series of hands-on, interactive sessions and lectures on a diverse range of subjects including biodesign, virtual anatomy, neuroscience and cancer. Their visit was part of our annual Med School 101 event, a day-long medical education program designed to expose teens to ongoing research at the School of Medicine and get them excited about potential careers in medicine and science.
This gallery illustrates some of the students' exciting experiences, from performing procedures on simulated patients to examining animal brain tissue samples. To see more images from the day, visit our full photo set on Flickr.
