Communications office to create new publication

The medical school's Office of Communication & Public Affairs will begin producing in July a new print publication, Inside Stanford Medicine, to regularly provide news from the School of Medicine, Stanford Hospital & Clinics and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.

The newspaper will come out monthly over the summer and will then move to a twice-monthly schedule for much of the school year. The publication arrives as both Stanford Report and Medical Center Report cease to be available in print editions. Today's issue is the last paper copy for both newspapers.

Inside Stanford Medicine aims to provide a roundup of research advances, personnel changes, new clinical practices and other features on the medical school and the hospitals. A free publication, it will be circulated in the medical school, with other distribution points to be determined at a later date. To have copies delivered to a department or center, contact Jonathan Rabinovitz at

The content from Stanford Report and Medical Center Report will continue to be available on university and medical school Web sites, as will that of Inside Stanford Medicine. Readers can also receive by e-mail the stories, columns and features once found in Medical Center Report and now to be included in Inside Stanford Medicine. To subscribe, contact
