When you attend the GSB, you should expect to design your own healthcare curriculum, taking advantage of relevant courses at the GSB as well as at the schools of medicine, engineering, and law. Learning opportunities are also available through health-related centers across the university such as the Center for Global Health Innovation, Stanford Health Policy, and the Clinical Research Excellence Center, as well as the Stanford Institute of Design.
Many of our healthcare courses are project-based, requiring students to work in multi-disciplinary teams to develop medical products or service offerings to address clinical needs that have been identified in the real world. Hear directly from students who have taken these clasess via a new video series where they describe their experiences and offer advice to other teams as they tackle similar projects.
