How to Apply

We invite all members of the Stanford community involved in advancing child and maternal health research and training to apply for membership in the Child Health Research Institute.

To apply for membership in Child Health Research Institute (CHRI), please read the policy below and fill in the brief questions Once your application is received, your Community Academic Profile (CAP) will be updated to reflect membership in CHRI.

A: General

The CHRI at Stanford engages the academic strengths of the Stanford School of Medicine (SSoM), along with Stanford's six other Schools, Independent Labs, Institutes, and Centers, so that they incrementally apply their research engines on issues that are relevant to child health. Child refers to the expectant mother, embryo, fetus, infant, child, and adolescent. To facilitate these efforts, the principles guiding membership in the CHRI are for the CHRI to be inclusive and for the members to be responsive to, and responsible for, the needs of the child health research community.

  • hold a doctoral degree: MD, PhD, or their equivalents
