3rd Annual SMS Cup
The Stanford Medical School Cup (SMS Cup) is an annual field day event to foster community building within and between learning communities. Faculty members serve as team coaches and cheer for their students as they engage in friendly competition in a series of events including relay races and trivia. Students have called it a “great way to de-stress” and an “opportunity to spend time with classmates, older students, and faculty mentors.” In 2014, more than 100 students, faculty, and staff members participated.
