Housing will be available in Stanford undergraduate or graduate residences. More specific information will be added to the CSI website as we receive it from Stanford Summer Conferences. Further details will also be sent to accepted students in March.
Students can still apply as long as their school transcripts are provided. If you are in 10th grade and have not taken the PSAT or you are an applicant who has taken one of the tests but has not received your scores, please upload a Word document or PDF with a brief statement stating why you do not have scores. You will need to submit delayed test scores to email@example.com as soon as you receive the score reports. All students, except international students who did not have the opportunity to take these tests, must provide their scores as soon as available. Applications will not be considered complete until test scores are received.
Stanford CSI is a clinically oriented internship and students may at times come in contact with patients during case studies (eg transplant patients on immune suppressant medications), standardized patients, clinicians and nurses, so it is important to know that they are healthy and do not have any communicable diseases, in particular tuberculosis. Documentation of a negative TB test (Mantoux or Quantiferon) within the preceding year is therefore required. If you have received the BCG tuberculosis vaccine, you will send need to send in a negative Quantiferon.
Generally, classes start at 9am and end at 4pm every day. Over the course of the two-week session, students may have an earlier start time and later end time for classes. When these adjustments are necessary, students will be given advanced notice of the schedule change.
Stanford Express Care and Stanford Emergency room are available to the students to seek care. Students are required to be covered individually or be on their parent’s insurance and those accepted will be required to show proof of coverage and a release for treatment for those under 18.
Each student is required to fill out a health form providing all the information about allergies and medications currently taken. Students will bring their medications to the campus and the program officials will administer them as required.
Parents can contact Kimya Stidum at 650-724-6060 if there is an issue concerning their student while the student is on campus. Kimya will be at LKSC when the participants are on campus and may also be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is limited parking available on campus. We recommend the monthly ‘C’ parking pass for any participants who do not have the option to bike or be dropped off each day. 'C' parking is available at the parking structure off of Welch and Stock Farm Road (parking structure 5). A more expensive 'A' parking pass allows you to park at Roth Way (parking structure 1). For more information regarding parking, please visit the Parking & Transportation Services website at https://transportation.stanford.edu/.
No, program does not provide transportation to the campus. Students can drive to campus or get dropped off and picked up every day. There are free campus shuttles available to and from the train station. Information about the shuttle schedule is available at transportation.stanford.edu.
All students will receive a certificate of completion for participating in the program. The certificate will be issued on the last day of the program. Students are required to attend all days with the exception of a day for illness or for emergencies.
Professional attire or scrubs are required during program hours as there will be interaction with physicians, patients, residents and medical students (no jeans, T- shirts, tank tops or cutoffs). Scrubs will be required on 5-6 days during activities such as dissections, suturing and anatomy lab; students will be notified ahead of time.
Students will be provided with white coats, scrubs and stethoscopes. They are expected to have their white coats and stethoscopes during sessions with patients.
