Center of Excellence in Diversity in Medical Education


Presentation by Dr.Myriam Curet

Stanford Medical Center consists of two world-class hospitals, Stanford University Hospital, and the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital, offers residency and fellowship training that will lead to careers of excellence and leadership in medicine. These hospitals provide cutting edge medical care to a diverse populations of patients, and in collaboration with the Palo Alto Veterans Hospital, Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, and Kaiser Permanente Santa Clara Medical Center, provide trainees with robust and outstanding medical training.

In addition to the excellence in training, the regional environment adds to the training experience in our programs. First, the great diversity of the people in the Bay Area offers an opportunity to work with patients from a variety of cultures and background. This will help trainees prepare themselves to practice in a growing diverse patient population. Second, the geographic location of the Stanford Medical Center on the Stanford University campus, allow trainees to access research and educational opportunities to enhance their training careers at Stanford. Moreover, situated in Silicon Valley, the nation's leading area of innovation, gives trainees exposure to the leading edge of medicine and biomedical science. However, the most important aspect of the Stanford environment is the diversity and excellence of the colleagues you will train with. Stanford's 40 year commitment to diversity in its trainees and faculty, and its dedication to producing leaders in medicine will provide a unique experience for your training.
