Free Program for Students Interested in Medicine and Science
We are Stanford Medical students and co-directors of the SCCMA/Stanford Transformative Experience in Medicine (SSTEM) program. Our goal is to provide high school students with a weekend program to increase engagement in science through hands-on projects and exposure to careers in medicine. Increasing the diversity of physicians in medicine is one of our primary goals, and we hope this program will inspire more students to pursue a career in healthcare.
The program will take place over three weekends: May 6th, May 13th, and May 20th of 2017. The first two sessions will take place in San Jose, with the last session taking place at Stanford. Each session will last approximately 5 hours, between 8:30am and 1:30pm. It is completely free for your students!
