Workshops/Seminars for Undergraduates from Other Schools
The ADVANCE Undergraduate Institute is a three-day intensive institute sponsored by the Stanford Biosciences and the Stanford Black Bioscience Organization. The AUI is designed to introduce diverse sophomores and juniors to the Stanford University campus and provide guidance in the graduate school admissions process.
This two-week course (offered multiple times in the summer) is for students considering careers in a variety of procedure-based medical fields, such as surgery, dental surgery, and nursing. It may also be of interest to students who intend to study biomedical engineering, occupational or physical therapy, sports medicine, or to become EMTs/paramedics. Housing on campus is an option: there is a fee to participate.
Leadership Education for Aspiring Physicians (LEAP) is a project-based seminar series designed for Bay Area premedical students seeking structured leadership development while improving community health and wellness. Successful participants will develop, implement, and evaluate community-directed projects aimed at improving health outcomes for a community of their choosing.
This program is designed for high school (rising juniors and seniors) and pre-medical undergraduate students interested in pursuing careers in medicine, STEM, medical research and development, or health care design, with a specific focus on Anesthesiology, Perioperative and Pain Medicine. Three sessions will be offered in 2020: Session 1 June 15-26, 2020, Session 2 July 27-August 7, 2020, Session 3 (Advanced) July 6-17. Tuition for Sessions 1 and 2 is $4,500. Tuiton for Session 3 is $5,995.
Big Data is radically transforming healthcare. To provide real-time personalized healthcare, we need hardware and software solutions that can efficiently store and process large-scale biomedical datasets. In this 3-week workshop, high school students and undergraduates will learn the concepts of cloud computing and parallel systems architecture, how to design parallel programs for computationally intensive medical applications, and how to run these applications on computing frameworks such as Cloud Computing and High-Performance Computing (HPC) systems. Cost is $5,000.
MEDCSI is a rigorous 2 week program in Medicine that is open to highly motivated high school and premed students. Workshops and sessions are taught by Stanford faculty and include hands-on experiences such as performing bedside ultrasounds, dissections, suturing, splinting and visits to the Stanford emergency life flight station and free clinics. There are two identical sessions each summer. There is a fee to participate.
