Professional Excellence Program (PEP)
The Advanced Practice Provider (APP) Professional Excellence Program (PEP), also known as PEP Time, is an initiative started by Stanford Health Care to promote and support APP engagement in non-patient care activities. As part of PEP, a specific amount of time known as PEP Time is allocated to APPs within their current work schedule for educational, scholarly, and professional activities outside of clinical duties. PEP aligns with SHC's mission “To Care, To Educate, To Discover."
APP SHINE Scholarship
We are pleased to announce a new scholarship for Advanced Practice Providers at Stanford, called the APP SHINE Scholarship. The scholarship name is to shed light on the meaningful professional work being done by APPs within our organization and remember the SHINE initiative in years to come.
They are travel scholarships of up to $2500 awarded to APPs in support of their presentation of SHC related work at professional conferences.
Visiting Observation Process
If you are seeking an observation-only experience, either as a lay person or as a licensed healthcare professional, you may directly contact the Privacy Assurance team at VisitingObserver@stanfordhealthcare.org. Visiting observations are facilitated by the Privacy Assurance team at Stanford Health Care. If you are interested in hosting an observer, whether that is a current employee, student, or colleague, it is important that you abide by the Privacy team's process to ensure compliance.
NOTE: Prior to applying for the visiting observer process, the observer must already have a host confirmed for their shadowing experience. The Privacy Assurance team will not match observers to hosts.
