Clerkship Courses


The Department of Pathology offers a four-week introductory pathology clerkship for students interested in exposure to the fields of anatomic and/or clinical pathology (see PATH 302A).  A more advanced elective that can be customized for in depth, longer-term exposure to one area of pathology is also available (see PATH 398A). Rotation locations include Stanford Health Care, Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital, the Palo Alto VA and our Hillview Avenue Laboratory.

If you are interested in enrolling in one of our clerkship courses, please send a completed departmental application form and your CV to the correct clerkship coordinator as indicated on the application. Please do not submit this application to the clerkship office.

Once we receive and approve your visit, please apply via the Clerkship website here. Note: please do not submit this application until you are instructed to do so.

The Department of Pathology also participate 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. For more information please visit the SCORE website here.
