Clerkships in Emergency Medicine

SCORE Program

  • Stanford School of Medicine and the Department of Emergency Medicine recognize the power of diversity and its impact on the future of healthcare. As such, we are working with the Office of Medical Student Affairs to provide an exceptional opportunity for visiting medical students who are underrepresented in medicine to apply for our Emergency Medicine elective EMED 313A.

  • Please refer to the Department of Emergency Medicine SCORE website for details about the program.
