Medical Scholars Research Program

Since 1980, the Stanford Medical Scholars Research Program has supported medical student research, both locally and off-site. Students carry out research in an academic setting under the direction of faculty members here at the medical school, hospital and clinics, and throughout the University. The fellowships provide funding and units as Medical Scholars Research 370.

The primary source of Stanford MedScholars fellowships are gifts made by private donors. These donations are frequently made by individuals who take an interest in the scholastic background, academic progress, and research activities of their aid. Recipients of a MedScholars grant may be required to write a personal letter of thanks and attend an annual donor recognition dinner.
