EMED 105: Film and Television Emergencies: Grasp Emergency Care through Pop Culture (EMED 205)

Although popular shows such as Grey's Anatomy successfully enthrall an audience, they often exchange accuracy for entertainment value. This course aims to "set the record straight" and deconstruct these medical dramas into the technical and non-technical skills involved in handling medical emergencies. Working in small groups and guided by emergency medicine faculty, students will actively curate content for discussions about the appropriate usage of these skills. Topics range from CPR and stroke management to decision making and the social influence of medial dramas. This course must be taken for a minimum of 3 units and a letter grade to be eligible for Ways credit.

EMED 114SI: On the Path to Medical School

This is a course for all prospective pre-medical students, including undergraduate and graduate students, who seek knowledge and guidance on their path to medical school. Discussions, presentations, and lectures will help students discover whether the pre­medical path is right for them and if so, how best to navigate the pre-med requirements. In collaboration with physician advisors and medical students, we have designed a series of presentations on topics including strategically approaching pre-medical classes and extracurriculars, studying for the MCAT, optimizing the medical school application, preparing for medical school interviews, and evidence-based pros and cons of careers in medicine and differences between specialties. This course will be a one-stop shop for getting all the information needed to become an efficient, successful pre-medical student as students consider whether medicine is right for them and navigate the path to medical school. Currently, to our knowledge, there are no classes directly targeted towards guiding students at every stage of the premed path in this way, and yet pre-meds are among the largest group of pre-professional students at Stanford.
