Program Information

Eligibility: Any student who is interested in medicine and is over the age of eighteen is eligible to apply. The program is available throughout the entire year, including the summer. Members must commit a minimum of 4 quarters to the program, the first two of which must be continuous. In order to graduate, members are required to complete 200 hospital volunteer hours.

Although all are encouraged to apply, we are currently looking to hire students with the following interests / skills:

  • Fluency in Spanish or Vietnamese
  • Interest in Directorship
  • Web Design skills
  • Experience in graphic design, photography, and videography (work samples required)
  • Fundraising experience

A Note about Commitment: Please read the section on Program Information before completing the application. Keep in mind that the average S.C.O.P.E. member spends between 10-12 hours per week interning/interpreting with doctors, completing project team work, and attending meetings. A minimum of 4 quarters (full year) of commitment is required; however, members have been known to stay for up to 5 years. The first two quarters need be continuous.

Work Study: We are able to offer a paid internship for executive leaders who are eligible for work-study at Stanford University. In some cases, we are able to offer academic credit through Stanford University.

Application Deadlines: Be sure to understand our program guidelines and requirements before you apply.  For more information, please check out our application page here.

Though SCOPE serves as a learning experience through immersing members in the Emergency Department, the primary goal of the program is to improve efficiency at Santa Clara Valley Medical Center. In order to fulfill the goals outlined in SCOPE's Mission Statement, all interns and interpreters are trained to:

  • Assist ER physicians by tracking labs and imaging
  • Stay attuned to patients' needs
  • Assist with the paperwork that accompanies each patient
  • Attend comfort rounds
  • Interpret Spanish or Vietnamese if qualified


In addition to the hospital component, interns and interpreters fulfill the internship's project component by contributing to SCOPE's learning community, program maintenance, administration, and implementation. Full descriptions of the various SCOPE project teams are available on Project Team Component page.

FAQs: For additional information, please refer to the FAQs page. If your questions are not answered in the FAQs, feel free to reach out to the Directors.
