The Stanford University School of Medicine is located in Silicon Valley, Calif., between San Francisco and San Jose. Instead of the traditional medical school interview process, candidates at the Stanford University School of Medicine complete 10 eight-minute interviews, with quick breaks in between. For those accepted to the M.D. program at the School of Medicine, the curriculum is also unique. Stanford’s Scholarly Concentrations program helps students get a more in-depth education in elected areas including bioengineering and clinical research, in addition to an education in the core sciences.
Students can get clinical experience in the nearby Stanford Medical Center, which includes Stanford Hospital and Clinics, in addition to the school’s various partner facilities. With more than 140 school centers and programs, student research is also encouraged. There are about 40 student organizations to join, from PALS, the Pediatric Chronic Disease Mentorship Program, to SWEAT, the Stanford Wilderness Experience Active Orientation Group.
Medical students can complete concurrent degrees, such as an M.D./Ph.D. in areas including bioengineering and biomedical informatics; an M.D./M.B.A. through the Stanford Graduate School of Business; and an M.D./M.P.H. (master of public health) in conjunction with the UC—Berkeley School of Public Health. The Stanford School of Medicine also offers master’s degree programs including biomedical informatics, epidemiology, and human genetics and genetic counseling.
Graduate students can live on campus—either in dorm rooms, apartments, or in cooperative housing—and slightly more than half of all graduate students at Stanford University do so. Notable alumni of the Stanford School of Medicine include James Mongan, CEO of Partners HealthCare; Irving Weissman, founder of stem cell companies SyStemix, Inc., StemCells, Inc., and Cellerant, Inc.; and Scott Parazynski, a former NASA astronaut.
