Stanford CARE Scholars

About Our Program

The Stanford Center for Asian Health Research and Education (CARE) offers an immersive, online course in Asian Health for undergraduate and graduate students, anchored by a 9-week summer immersion in Data Science and Vulnerable Populations. This exceptional program leverages the unique aspects of Stanford’s world-class research, technology, and medical infrastructure to train scholars to become superb population science researchers.

By the end of the program, Scholars will utilize tools to conduct large database analysis, understand core concepts in health care research, and identify problems/solutions in vulnerable populations. In addition, Scholars will effectively engage with technologists, entrepreneurs, non-profits, and population science researchers.

Throughout the summer, Scholars will participate with Stanford faculty and visiting faculty in ongoing seminars around: Asian health, medical technology, AI, medical research, vulnerable populations, global health, essentials of research, innovation and leadership, scholarship and presentation, and career goals.

The course content aims to facilitate student career development and professional success. We place extra emphasis on mentorship, wellness, and personal career development to ensure that our students have a fulfilling experience that prepares them for careers as Scholars in medicine and research. Our students will build connections with Stanford CARE's global network of thought leaders and professionals, and with each other.
