Bridge to Opportunity, Support, and Training


Stanford MSTP BOOST (Bridge to Opportunity, Support, and Training) is a four-day program sponsored by the Stanford School of Medicine, MSTP, Office of the Vice Provost for Graduate Education, and Biosciences. Previously known as Preview, this program aims to introduce diverse college students to the Stanford University community and offer professional development that prepares students for the MD-PhD admissions process. Eligible applicants must be interested in pursuing an MD-PhD.

BOOST is currently aiming to host scholars for on-campus visits in 2022, including our typical schedule of events, overnight accommodations, meals, and travel to and from Stanford at no cost. Please note that the program treats international travel on a case by case basis.

Opportunities during BOOST:

  • Networking with faculty and MD-PhD students
  • Mock interviews for MD-PhD admissions
  • Longitudinal guidance from a current student
  • Personalized assistance with professional documents (e.g. CV, etc.)
  • Lab tours
