How to Apply

Appointments to the Fellowship are ordinarily made for the academic year, September to August. The application deadline is November 15th for the following academic year; applications may be received anytime during the year prior to the deadline. Interviews are required and are conducted at Stanford during December and early January (we are not able to provide travel expenses but will try to accommodate existing travel plans; if you expect to be in the Stanford area, please include this information with your application). The selection process is complete by January/February; physician candidates may apply on the same schedule, with their appointment beginning in 18 months.
