Advanced EM Summer Program

This summer, for the third year in a row, high school students interested in emergency medicine will have the opportunity to stay on campus and engage directly with the Stanford University School of Medicine faculty on a daily basis. During the 10-day course, students will learn how to properly perform rescue breaths and chest compressions, how to suture wounds, how to work as a team when stabilizing a patient, and whether or not they can handle working with real cadavers during the anatomy lab.

The 2019 summer session is now enrolling. Learn more and apply on the  Envision website.

Scholarships

Scholarships are available for those who qualify. These scholarships are offered through the Stanford Department of Emergency Medicine and require a separate application process, in addition to the program application.

Interested parties should submit a CV/resume, letter of intent/statement of why they want to attend, and two letters of recommendation from a teacher, school counselor or principal. The letters should affirm that the student is of a disadvantaged background.
