The Clinical Anatomy Pre-Health Initiative (CAPHI) is hosted by the Stanford Department of Surgery and Division of Clinical Anatomy. CAPHI is a week-long summer intensive for undergraduate students who identify as first-generation college students, low-income, and/or underrepresented in health professions. CAPHI seeks to empower pre-health students in their educational paths by introducing students to the academic rigor of graduate level anatomy coursework and exploring a multitude of allied health professions. CAPHI students will attend an anatomy lecture series, anatomy labs with cadaveric specimens, skill-building sessions, and speaker workshops. 

Program eligibility:

CAPHI students must identify with one or more of the following: 

  • First generation college student 
  • Low-income background 
  • Minority in medicine/ health professions
