Stanford Medical History Center
CURRENT EXHIBIT: History of Neurosurgery at Stanford
The Department of Neurosurgery at the Stanford University School of Medicine has distinguished itself in clinical care and research in neuro-oncology, pediatric neurosurgery, stem cell research, and many other areas. But did you know that teaching and training in neurosurgery at Stanford can be traced back to San Francisco in the 1890s at Cooper Medical College, the predecessor institution to Stanford's School of Medicine?
The exhibit is now on display on the first floor of Lane Medical Library, near the main entrance. This is the first in a new series of exhibits on the history of the Departments and programs in the Stanford University School of Medicine that will be featured in Lane Library.
