- Student Clinical Opportunities for Premedical Experience (SCOPE) is a student-run internship program based out of Stanford University that places interns in the Santa Clara Valley Emergency Room.
- All our premed students make an informed decision about a career in medicine, using thoughtful criteria based on real world exposure, and all of our students meet high degrees of life success in and out of medicine.
- Through this honest and active exploration, we will increase compassion across professions and especially within medicine.
- We provide meaningful clinical experiences to premedical students through tight clinical partnerships with emergency medicine attending physicians and translation experiences for those qualified, and these student interns and interpreters will reflect on the meaning of each experience to their path in medicine through journal entries and group discussions
- As we empower our interns and interpreters to improve the quality of patient care at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center, we simultaneously allow them to make the best informed medical career decisions possible and emerge happier people.
- In exchange for receiving this structure of support and culture of cooperation, our interns and interpreters actively maintain, nurture and grow SCOPE as an organization and community for future generations of students.
- Our interns and interpreters practice the Five Principles of S.C.O.P.E.: Responsibility, Altruism, Teamwork, Initiative and Commitment.
