Our Staff
Career Services Overview
Welcome to the Stanford School of Medicine Career Center.

The School of Medicine Career Center provides critical support for the exploration of career options, development of professional skill sets, and connections to opportunities. We house career and professional development resources via in-house and online libraries. Further, as career counselors, we provide insight into the career development and job search process one on one. Finally, we partner with alumni, faculty, and experts in myriad fields around discussion groups and curricular efforts. This curriculum, aimed at increasing awareness of and marketability for these various options, supplements an already strong scientific foundation with innovative and practical skill sets. Through all of our services and offerings, we empower our trainees in both defining their individual passions and short and long term goals as well as those impacting other organizations, cultures, and communities regardless of external expectations of career choice.
