PRESS Program

Promoting Resident Experiences in the Subspecialties at Stanford

Program Overview & Goals

The Department of Pediatrics at Stanford School of Medicine is committed to recruiting and supporting prospective fellows with a variety of backgrounds and life experiences to reach a new level of innovation in instruction, research, and patient care. We want to welcome applicants who are underrepresented in medicine, socially, economically, or educationally disadvantaged, and others whose backgrounds and experiences would diversify their clinical fields. This program is designed to foster a community of diverse learners and faculty and to provide residents the opportunity to explore fellowship opportunities within our pediatric medical subspecialties.

  • To provide educational and career development in support of Stanford Medicine’s mission.
  • To enhance the educational experience of all trainees by promoting the diversity of our community.  
  • To foster opportunities for collaboration between Stanford Medicine and other institutions and encourage trainees to consider Stanford Medicine for their future training and career.

Program Description

The program will bring residents from diverse backgrounds to Stanford for a 4-week in-person clinical training experience within the Stanford School of Medicine, Department of Pediatrics. Residents will have the opportunity to rotate within one of the subspecialty rotations offered at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital in Palo Alto, California, and surrounding clinics. Visiting residents will gain clinical exposure in a subspecialty area of interest, participate in programming to foster community and belonging, and will be paired with a faculty and fellow mentor during their visit.

PRESS Rotations for the 2024-25 academic year will occur during one of the following 4-week blocks:

  • March 3-30, 2025
