Our Stanford Clinical Summer Internship Program aims to create a transparent and fair policy for refunds. Since we have very limited seats in our competitive program, it is often difficult or impossible to find qualified students to replace a student who chooses to withdraw from the program after acceptance. Please make sure that you are able to attend our summer program before making your enrollment decision. If you enroll and later find you cannot attend our program and would like to request a refund, we ask that you first send us a letter forfeiting your place in our program. At that point, we will do our best to find a replacement for your spot. If we are able to find a replacement student, we will refund your tuition less an administrative fee equal to 20% of tuition. If we are unable to find a replacement, we will refund 50% of the program fee till June 1, 2020. No refund request will be accepted after June 1, 2020. No refund or discount will be given for early departures once the program has begun.
Refunds requests must be made formally via email to email@example.com. Please allow 2-3 business days for the review of your request.
Stanford CSI is a clinically oriented internship and students may at times come in contact with patients during case studies (eg transplant patients on immune suppressant medications), standardized patients, clinicians and nurses, so it is important to know that they are healthy and do not have any communicable diseases, in particular tuberculosis. Documentation of a negative TB test (Mantoux or Quantiferon) within the preceding year is therefore required. If you have received the BCG tuberculosis vaccine, you will send need to send in a negative Quantiferon.
Accepted applicants are required to provide a copy of the following immunizations with registration to attend CSI (no exceptions):
One dose of TdaP between age 11-12
3 Hepatitis B
2 Measles, Mumps, Rubella (MMR)
2 Varicella (chicken pox) immunizations - or MD confirmation of illness, or laboratory evidence of illness (antibodies)
Meningococcal vaccine at 16
TB test - evidence of immunity within a year prior to start of the internship via PPD/Mantoux skin test or TB Quantiferon antibody test (is not altered by previous BCG vaccination). If the skin test is positive, either a negative chest Xray or negative Quantiferon or proof of treatment is required.
Generally, classes start at 9am and end at 4pm every day. Over the course of the two-week session, students may have an earlier start time and later end time for classes. When these adjustments are necessary, students will be given advanced notice of the schedule change.
Stanford Express Care and Stanford Emergency room are available to the students to seek care. Students are required to be covered individually or be on their parent’s insurance and those accepted will be required to show proof of coverage and a release for treatment for those under 18.
Each student is required to fill out a health form providing all the information about allergies and medications currently taken. Students will bring their medications to the campus and the program officials will administer them as required.
There is limited parking available on campus. We recommend the monthly ‘C’ parking pass for any participants who do not have the option to bike or be dropped off each day. 'C' parking is available at the parking structure off of Welch and Stock Farm Road (parking structure 5). A more expensive 'A' parking pass allows you to park at Roth Way (parking structure 1). For more information regarding parking, please visit the Parking & Transportation Services website at https://transportation.stanford.edu/.
No, program does not provide transportation to the campus. Students can drive to campus or get dropped off and picked up every day. There are free campus shuttles available to and from the train station. Information about the shuttle schedule is available at transportation.stanford.edu.
All students will receive a certificate of completion for participating in the program. The certificate will be issued on the last day of the program. Students are required to attend all days with the exception of a day for illness or for emergencies.
Professional attire or scrubs are required during program hours as there will be interaction with physicians, patients, residents and medical students (no jeans, T- shirts, tank tops or cutoffs). Scrubs will be required on 5-6 days during activities such as dissections, suturing and anatomy lab; students will be notified ahead of time.
Students will be provided with white coats, scrubs and stethoscopes. They are expected to have their white coats and stethoscopes during sessions with patients.
