Latest information on COVID-19

COVID-19 Update: It has been decided that due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Stanford Clinical Summer Internship program will be offering all sessions virtually in 2022. Session 1 (July 11-22) will now be held virtually and not on Stanford's campus. Session 2 (July 25- Aug 5) will continue to be held virtually as was originally planned. We remain hopeful that it will be safe to offer a session on Stanford's campus in 2023.

 Stanford CSI brings together curious learners from differing backgrounds to actively engage in the exploration of the art and science behind world-class medicine. Discover, contribute and make meaningful connections and friendships while working alongside dedicated and dynamic Stanford medical students, residents and faculty, who are all eager to share the joy they have found in medicine.
