Discovery Hall, Redwood City — Home of the Stanford Pathology HR Team


The Department of Pathology Human Resources team is here to help staff, faculty, and students with guidance, resources and support during your tenure with us! We hope our website provides you with quick and easy references to your human resources inquiries.

Our purpose is to foster a work environment that develops, rewards and retains a talented, productive and diversified workforce. We aim to embed our work environment with our core values of accountability, collaboration, communication and positive impact. We work in partnership with staff and managers through all HR-related matters including recruitments, staff engagement, performance and learning & development opportunities. We want to support a culture of wellnessdiversity and inclusion, as well as encourage work-life balance while connecting you with the best that Stanford has to offer.

It is our goal to provide a work environment that is conducive to teaching and learning, research, the practice of medicine and patient care. Central to this is Stanford’s principle of a shared commitment among all members of the community to respect each person's worth and dignity.

We welcome your feedback on an ongoing basis - simply email Sochietta Kao or Jordone Shane-Sánchez with your suggestions. Please do not hesitate to contact our team with additional questions - we are here to help!
