Program Overview

Stanford’s Internal Medicine Residency Program offers housestaff unique and diverse experiences in patient care.  Our residents rotate through three hospitals, affording a wealth of clinical exposure and an understanding of operational activities of different health care systems. Our University Hospital is a large tertiary care referral center for Northern California and beyond.  Our second site is the Palo Alto Veterans Administration Hospital, a nationally acclaimed VA health care institution which serves as a referral center for Northern California, Nevada, and Hawaii VA hospitals. Finally our residents rotate through Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, a large County hospital, which serves a population of underserved and immigrant populations. Stanford offers a unique Biodesign fellowship for residents upon completion of residency.   It is a dynamic collaboration between the Schools of Medicine, Business, Law, and Engineering. This innovative program involves the design and implementation of cutting edge biomedical devices that are use to advance medical care.
