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 Knight-Hennessy Scholars program is designed to build a multidisciplinary community of Stanford graduate students dedicated to finding creative solutions to the world's greatest challenges.
Knight-Hennessy Scholars will award full funding to Stanford medical students for twelve quarters, with additional opportunities for leadership training and collaboration across all graduate disciplines.
The KHSP application must be submitted prior to submitting the Stanford Medicine Supplemental Application. Once submitted, an applicant will receive a KHSP confirmation code to input in the MD application. Apply to Knight-Hennessy Scholars by September 12, 2018.
