About Educational Programs and Services (EPS)

Educational Programs and Services (EPS) is home to departments and programs that are central to the educational mission of the School of Medicine.

We serve all populations of students and trainees who participate in the School's programs: Stanford MD, MS, MSPA, and PhD students; visiting MD students seeking clinical clerkships; postdoctoral scholars and medical fellows; and medical practitioners seeking further professional enrichment. Our goal is to provide a Stanford School of Medicine experience worthy of our students' and trainees' talents, aspirations, and dedication.

EPS receives essential direction from the School's Senior Associate Deans for Medical Student Education (Dr. Neil Gesundheit), Graduate Education and Postdoctoral Affairs (Dr. Sheri M. Krams), and Finance and Operations. The Associate Dean for Educational Programs and Services (Julia Tussing) reports to these three Senior Associate Deans. The Associate Dean and the Finance and Administration Team provide central guidance and support to all EPS departments, programs, and staff.
