"Stanford Medical Youth Science Program" short film


Here’s a short film (8 minutes), “The Stanford Medical Youth Science Program” (SMYSP).



The program invites high school seniors, usually from lower income areas, to spend five weeks in a summer dorm program learning some basic medicine, with the idea of future medical school in mind.

The  video dates back to 2010, but there may be a newer one.

NBC4 (NBC Washington) had announced on Tuesday, July 26 that it was going to show a report on teens and medical school, but the report never surfaced.  I think it may be related to the Stanford program.

Jack Andraka now attends Stanford. (Books, March 18, 2015;  TV, Nov. 26, 2013)
