High School / Premed Outreach Programs

Although CVI does not have any internal programs for students at the High School and Pre-med stage, several other Stanford programs are available.

The Stanford Clinical Summer Internship (Stanford CSI) is a 2-week program for current high school sophomores, juniors, seniors, and undergraduate pre-med students designed to empower and energize diverse learners as they delve into the art, science, and joy of practicing medicine. Participants will gain clinical skills and knowledge across primary care, emergency medicine, obstetrics, cardiology, neurology, and surgery as well as insights to help plan for a career in medicine.

SIMR is an 8-week summer internship program open to high school juniors and seniors. The program consists of hands-on research under the direct guidance of a one-on-one mentor at a research lab within the Institutes of Medicine at Stanford University.   

The Cardiothoracic Surgical Skills and Education Center Stanford Summer Internship is designed to educate high school and pre-medical students considering careers in science, medicine, and public health in basic and advanced cardiovascular anatomy and physiology as well as medical and surgical techniques that will be utilized in pre-medical and medical school.

SPCS programs provide pre-collegiate students from the U.S. and around the world the chance to explore their passions and dive deep into a single topic beyond what is typically taught in a school curriculum.
