Our Community

Welcome to a Thriving Learning Community!

Join Our Close-Knit and Diverse Community

At Stanford, we take pride in fostering a community where every individual is valued and celebrated. With a small group of passionate graduate students, you'll experience unparalleled interaction and forge lifelong friendships. Our commitment to inclusivity ensures that everyone feels welcome, no matter their background or experiences.

Unparalleled Faculty Support

Imagine a learning environment where faculty and administrative staff are not just mentors but also your strongest supporters. In our MLAS program, you'll benefit from personalized attention, small class sizes, and dedicated one-on-one guidance. Your success is our top priority, and we are committed to helping you achieve your goals.

Building Connections Over Shared Experiences

We understand the importance of networking and building lasting connections. We sponsor quarterly social events exclusively for MLAS students to gather over a meal to connect with peers, share experiences, and broaden professional networks. Our friendly and nurturing atmosphere ensures you feel right at home. Field trips with faculty and Laboratory Animal Medicine residents to places like the Hopkins Marine Station; Moss Landing near the Monterey Bay to tour the Elkhorn Slough; and Ano Nuevo State Park to observe elephant seals are a fantastic way to expand horizons beyond the classroom and laboratory settings. These hands-on experiences provide practical insights into laboratory animal science, making the learning process even more engaging and fulfilling.

Let us be a part of your journey to success. Join us and become a vital member of our vibrant and supportive community.
