Med School 101 kicks off on Stanford campus today

MS 101 lecture

As a reminder, our annual Med School 101 event kicks off this morning on the Stanford campus. At the day-long gathering, around 140 high school students from ten Bay Area high schools will participate in a variety of sessions on medicine and science-related topics at the Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge.

We’ll be live tweeting two of the sessions: a talk on sleep and related disorders from Rafael Pelayo, MD, 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. Follow the coverage starting at 9 AM Pacific time on the @SUMedicine feed or by using the hashtag #SUMed101.
