About Us

 

Welcome to the Medical Explorers Post #63 Website! 

Palo Alto Medical Explorers Post # 63 is a group for high school students interested in medicine. Supervised by Dr. Enoch Choi, this Medical Post exposes students to numerous areas in the field of medicine such as pediatrics, psychology, and genetics. Dr. Harry Hartzell, the advisor emeritus, will also be involved with the program.

Medical Explorers members attend lectures in which well-known and experienced health specialists present interesting information related to their jobs.  Not only are members able to interact with highly skilled medical professionals, but they are also able to visit extraordinary places through field trips. In the past, we’ve visited Stanford’s anatomy lab for a guided examination of cadavers and an innovative startup company working on ultrasound technologies. Members have also been able to work with technologically advanced robots at the world-renowned simulation lab and receive tours inside labs devoted to genetics, pathology, and cardiology.  These are just a few examples of our field trips as Medical Explorers, and we hope to offer many more fascinating and unique experiences for our members.

New members are always welcome! Medical Explorers is a great way to dive into the word of medicine or just figure out if medicine is right for you. We can accept new members during any part of the school year. Our meetings are held on Mondays (check schedule for dates) on the third floor of the Palo Alto Medical Clinic usually from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. Field trips are also during the afternoon of Mondays, but they are not held as regularly. Check out the Schedule page for the more information regarding upcoming meetings.  Fee for the entire year is $20.
