Programs in Neurology
SIMR is for high school juniors and seniors interested in hands-on research in immunology, stem cell, cancer, neuroscience, bioinformatics or cardiovascular medicine. This eight week program enables students to take part in research, attend introductory lectures and present their work at a poster session open to the Stanford community. There is no cost to participate; interns earn at least a $500 stipend.
The Stanford Medical Youth Science Program offers five weeks of intensive science and health training each summer. Participants live together at Stanford, attend scientific lectures, complete anatomy laboratory practicums, intern at Stanford Hospital & Clinics and the Veterans Affairs Palo Alto Health Care System hospital, and learn about college entrance requirements, application procedures and financial aid. There is no cost to participate.
The Stanford Summer Research Program in Biomedical Sciences/Amgen Scholars Program is a nine-week paid residential internship program serving undergraduates from across the country who want to prepare for and enter Ph.D. programs in biomedical sciences.
In addition to formal internship programs for high school students, Stanford labs sometimes host high school interns on an informal basis, usually in unpaid internships. The Office of Science Outreach is not able to help individual students identify a host lab or project but if you click on the red title above, you will find some information and tips.
