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.
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. Please do not contact the Office of Science Outreach for advice or guidance.
Stanford's Clinical Anatomy invites high school teachers to bring their students to visit the labs and facilities. Through customizable programs, instructors help students discover, learn, and apply human anatomy in a professional context by introducing students to many of the same learning resources used by Stanford medical students.
