Med School 101, the event that offers local teens a glimpse into the world of medical school, returns to Stanford School of Medicine today.
The event began as a small suite of talks in 2006, and it has grown in size and popularity ever since. This year, 140 sophomores and juniors from six Bay Area schools will take part in a day of talks and demonstrations on topics such as, "So you wanna go to med school," "Virtual anatomy: Slice and dice on a life-sized iPad" and "Chasing the elusive sheep of sleep."
Many of the students attending this event already have an interest in medicine and science, but for some, Med School 101 is a chance to explore career paths they hadn't considered before.
