Open Sourcing A Doctor’s Education
Knowledge sharing and medicine come together in Stanford's Mini-Med School.
Besides a mortgage, Americans are faced with mounting costs of higher education as as well as medical bills. We have previously reported about people relying on self-diagnosis as well as trends towards open source education.
In the vein of these trends, Stanford Medical School has opened up it’s lecture series The Stanford Mini-Med School to the public. Covering topics from basic “human biology, health and disease and the groundbreaking changes taking place in medical research and health care,” the series offers another win in open knowledge sharing.
