Outreach Programs

Though the Division of Clinical Anatomy is best known at Stanford for teaching introductory anatomy to medical students and hosting resident training lab sessions, we also offer an assortment of other educational programs, from summer short courses and internships for high school students to custom review sessions for medical professionals.

Through our Outreach Programs, we provide opportunities to learn about human anatomy, medicine, and medical education to curious learners in our community. Many of our programs are open to the public, though some are designed for select audiences. Our popular half-day "staff only" courses are exclusively available to administrative and support staff at Stanford University, Stanford Hospital & Clinics, and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.

Examples of our Outreach Programs:

  • Advanced Discovering Anatomy: Designed like a medical school course and taught by Stanford faculty, participants will explore the human anatomy associated with common medical conditions and traumatic injuries, and observe and participate in the performance of the surgical procedures to correct these conditions.
  • Guided visits for local high school classes
  • Private anatomy tutorials for individuals and small groups
  • Clinical Anatomy Summer Programs—multi-week courses and internships
  • Discipline-specific training for clinical fellows
  • Anatomy review labs for medical professionals—specialized "brush-up" sessions for physical therapists, occupational therapists, and others
  • Athletics & Anatomy—customized anatomy sessions for athletic trainers, coaches, and athletes, with emphasis on common injuries and rehabilitation

We can design a custom program for your group upon request!
