I went to one of these sessions a few years back - it was awesome! I think the topics were anesthesiology & orthopedics (i know - weird combo...). They show you the latest technology they're using to teach with and to practice medicine.

:D

My only issue is that it's so spread out...You know, if I wanted the whole shebang, I couldnt if I'm not in NY. Otherswise, looks like soemthing I would totally want to attend, just to satisfy my curiosity

Hey RAwe -

The first session is APRIL 27th - not March. Just thought I'd draw your attention to that - it kinda sucks to show up on the wrong day. ;)

I did a mini medschool at the university of Kentucky a couple of years back. Some of the lectures were very interesting. I would reccomend it to anyone.
