Empowering Tomorrow's Physician Leaders

With close ties to Stanford University and a world-class medical center, Stanford University School of Medicine sets the training ground for the next generation of biomedical leaders and pioneers.  All of the resources of our campus - extraordinary faculty and peers, state-of-the-art facilities and a diverse campus life – will provide you limitless opportunities to interact with a community of scholars who will support your educational endeavors and make you feel at home.


A New Era in Medical Education

The School of Medicine is at the forefront of a major transformation in medical education. Known as the “flipped-classroom” model, this new approach moves traditional lecture content to online video, thereby freeing classroom time for interactive learning among peers and faculty.

Undergraduate & Youth Opportunities

The School of Medicine sponsors a number of programs to introduce undergraduate and high school students from underrepresented backgrounds to careers in medicine and basic science research. 


The Li Ka Shing Center for Learning and Knowledge is the primary hub for the medical school's educational activities. In addition to flexible learning spaces, the center houses a student lounge and the most comprehensive health-care simulation training facility in the country.

Dual-Degree opportunities

Stanford offers a range of opportunities to pursue multiple advanced degrees, both within the medical school and at schools across the university.
