MCiM follows a robust, holistic admissions process that welcomes applicants with a diverse range of experiences and backgrounds. Applicants will be asked to demonstrate their academic readiness for a rigorous intellectual experience and their topical interest in this exceptional program.

Selection Criteria

We seek to build a student cohort that represents intellectual, demographic, and cultural diversity across clinical, non-clinical, and technical backgrounds. We are proud of our holistic admissions process that evaluates students based on their professional experience, academic abilities, career aspirations, and personal values. Applicants are expected to have graduated from an accredited undergraduate degree program or an international degree that is equivalent to a U.S. bachelor's degree from a college or university of recognized standing. They must demonstrate their capability to manage the intensity and rigor of the MCiM program and to leverage it to advance their career. 

At the intersection of medicine, business, and technology, MCiM offers a unique opportunity to cultivate team- and relationship-building in a diverse learning environment. We thereby aim to develop a cadre of professionals in health care with a commitment to inclusivity and to promoting greater diversity in leadership roles. 

Stanford University’s Commitment to Diversity

At Stanford, we strive to ensure that a diversity of cultures, races and ethnicities, genders, political and religious beliefs, physical and learning differences, sexual orientations and identities is thriving on our campus. Such diversity will inspire new angles of inquiry, new modes of analysis, new discoveries and new solutions. 

To advance education, it is essential to be exposed to views and cultures other than one’s own and to have one’s opinions and assumptions challenged. Such engagement expands our horizons, enables understanding across difference, prevents complacency and promotes intellectual breadth.
