Emerson Collective, The Stanford-Meharry Initiative, SCORE Program

Emerson Collective (undergraduate or recent undergraduates)

The Stanford Pathology Department is participating in the Emerson Collective First Gen Intern program. This program will match first generation college students with paid summer internship opportunities in biomedical research labs within our department.

Internships harness the extraordinary talent of college students and are critical to ensuring better career outcomes and social mobility. Emerson Collective, in partnership with leading companies and non-profits on the West Coast, will match first-generation college students with ten-week paid internships for summer 2022.


Stanford-HBMC Research Retreat

The Stanford-HBMC Research Retreat showcases the summer research projects of second-year medical students from Meharry, Morehouse, and Howard medical colleges with their research mentors from Stanford University School of Medicine.

The Stanford-HBMC Summer Research Program matches medical students from historically black medical colleges with Stanford University research mentors for an 8-week research experience. This year, 48 student mentees participated in the program, matching with mentors from departments across the Stanford University School of Medicine.

Initially established in 2017 as the Stanford-Meharry Initiative by Dr. Abraham Verghese in the Department of Medicine, the program now features mentors from departments across Stanford University School of Medicine and partners with the Office of Faculty Development and Diversity and the Racial Equity to Advance a Community of Health Initiative.  Participating medical students hail from Meharry Medical College, Howard University College of Medicine and Morehouse School of Medicine. We hope you enjoy this interactive and informative retreat!

SCORE - Stanford Clinical Opportunity for Residency Experience

Our department participates in the Stanford Clinical Opportunity for Residency Experience (SCORE) program. SCORE recognizes that Stanford Medicine’s ideal of true community engagement is unlikely to occur without a workforce that is diverse in many ways. This includes individuals who are underrepresented in medicine, socially, economically, or educationally disadvantaged, and others whose backgrounds and experiences would diversify their clinical fields. SCORE brings fourth-year medical students from diverse backgrounds to Stanford for a four-week residential clinical training program in pathology and other clinical departments. Participants will be provided housing for the duration of the rotation, a monetary stipend, receive mentorship from Stanford faculty and participate in special program activities designed to form connections with Stanford faculty, residents, and other students.
