A Message from the Directors of the Stanford Society of Physician Scholars
The Stanford Society of Physician Scholars (SSPS) was created by the Office of the Dean in 2010 to support the academic development of residents and fellows from clinical departments across our School of Medicine. We aim to have the Society serve as a “mixing chamber” for trainees across our diverse specialty and subspecialty training programs and to connect trainees across the continuum of medical education. Residents and fellows are the core of the Society; medical students and faculty represent the spectrum of the continuum. Our hope is that the program will enhance the opportunities for trainees to identify with Stanford Medicine and provide a pathway for seamless progress from medical school through residency and fellowship into academic careers.
SSPS is designed to facilitate collaborations with Stanford medical students across a broad range of scholarly projects. Through this collaboration, we hope that many of our students can benefit from the guidance of near peers, and that Scholars can enhance the development of their mentoring skills.
The Stanford Society of Physician Scholars stands out as unique in the country and is an asset for participants and our broader educational environment.
