We are currently accepting application for the July, 2014 start date. The deadline for complete application package is October 31, 2013.
We highly encourage prospective applicants to consider doing an elective month with us at Stanford during the spring or early summer months. Please see requirements and details at This is not required but would be a great opportunity for us to get to know each other and to learn more about the program. If you are interested, please contact us as soon as possible as the available spots for elective residents are limited and will be offered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Please note that it generally takes 30 days or longer for the Stanford GME office to process elective rotation requests.
