Summer Research Internship

Main content start

The application cycle for this year is now closed and we are at capacity. We hope to run this program in future years and encourage interested students to apply next year.

The Stanford Center for Artificial Intelligence in Medicine and Imaging (AIMI) is committed to advancing AI research in medicine for public good, promoting health equity and excellence in healthcare. In this spirit, we are excited to launch our inaugural Summer Research Internship for high school students interested in exploring technical and clinical aspects of AI in healthcare.

Stanford AIMI Researchers

During this two-week virtual program, we aim to spark interest and empower the next generation of AI pioneers in medicine through a combination of lectures on AI in healthcare fundamentals, hands-on research projects, and mentoring activities with Stanford researchers. An extended independent research internship opportunity may be available for interested program participants. Our hope is to inspire students to develop innovative AI solutions to advance human health.

There is no fee to participate in this internship.

Important Dates

  • Program dates: June 20 - July 1, 2022 (Mon-Fri, 9am-1pm PT)

Students must be over the age of 14 by the start of the program. Stanford AIMI embraces inclusion, integrity, diversity, and team-science as pillars for success. We encourage students from all backgrounds to apply, particularly students from groups under-represented in AI. No coding, AI, or data science experience necessary. We will select a cohort representing diverse experience and skill levels. Participants must arrange for their own transportation to and from Stanford, and housing is not provided.
