Media Resources

The Office of Communications is dedicated to sharing Stanford Health Care and Stanford School of Medicine news with the media and helping journalists secure expert interviews for their stories. 

Contacting our office as early as possible will allow us to better meet media requests. When deadlines are tight, we will make every effort to get you the information and experts you need. Please find our primary media contacts listed to the right.

Print media

Our group can offer supplemental background, provide timely access to researchers, physicians or faculty members and suggest additional sources if your first choice is unavailable. Contact Lisa Kim to schedule interviews and other deadline-related needs.

Guidelines for TV/video and digital media

Permission must be obtained from our office prior to any filming or recording on School of Medicine or Stanford Health Care grounds. Upon request, we are happy to arrange for video crews to attend procedures, tape a live event or conduct interviews with faculty and staff members.

Once permission has been granted, our representatives will make the necessary arrangements with campus security, provide parking information and help guide crews through the process of setting up a video shoot or radio spot on campus. Contact Lisa Kim for broadcast news media requests. Contact Margarita Gallardo for documentary requests.
