The COVID-19 pandemic has disrupted clinical education across the country and has created unique challenges for students applying to Emergency Medicine. Our top priorities remain medical student health and well-being. We will be adhering to the following guidelines:
Ideally, each student will complete one EM rotation, typically at their home institution.
We will be expecting applicants to have only one EM SLOE.
We encourage Non-EM SLOEs, using the O-SLOE template.

What steps are the residency program taking to protect residents during the pandemic?
Our residents completes mastery learning on donning/doffing PPE. Stanford continues to have adequate supplies of PPE to protect our residents.
I am an IMG or from an orphan program, therefore do not have an EM SLOE. Will you still consider my application?
We understand that IMGs and medical students without a home Emergency Medicine rotation may not be able to obtain an EM SLOE. We will still review your application in its entirety despite not having an EM SLOE.
Do you consider applicants that have already completed previous training?
Yes, please submit your application through ERAS and we will review your application in its entirety.
