The year is 2032. You are the doctor on a ship of 5000, when suddenly you encounter hostile forces. Now, the sickbay is overflowing with the injured and dying. Your mission is to repair, reconstruct and regenerate your wounded shipmates before time runs out. Welcome to the Hippocrates Challenge 2014, a course designed for anyone with an interest in medicine. When you take the challenge in this course, you'll be offered the opportunity to gain a better understanding of the structure and function of the human body, how tissues respond to injury, and how stem cells and regenerative medicine can change the face of treatment of trauma. Using case-based studies and collaborative projects, you will diagnose patients and then work in teams to repair and reconstruct their injuries. By the end of this course, you will have had the chance to learn the principles of human physiology and anatomy, surgical reconstruction and explore the innovative new field of regenerative medicine.
**Statement of Accomplishment** Subject to satisfactory performance and course completion, you will receive a statement of accomplishment signed by the instructor. This statement will not stand in the place of a course taken at Stanford or an accredited institution.
