Helping Protect the Health of Humanity
Discovering the next generation of approaches to prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Educating the next generation of health care professionals. Delivering the next generation of clinical care to our community today. This is what Stanford Medicine is all about.
As one of the world’s leading academic medical centers situated at Stanford University, we routinely collaborate with other schools in our university system— Engineering, Humanities and Sciences, Business, Earth Sciences, and Law. Whether we’re talking to a physicist, a computer engineer, or a human-centered design expert, we always look to see how other disciplines can inform our scientific discoveries and future clinical treatments. This helps us advance the principles and practice of precision health care that is proactive, predictive, and preventive.
But that’s only part of what truly distinguishes Stanford Health Care. Our location in Silicon Valley and the role we have played in its creation give us a unique vantage point on the latest technology and the ability to attract unmatched talent—the best doctors, researchers, leadership, and staff. Many of today’s technology leaders began at Stanford University. In fact, we were the academic incubator for the digital revolution. With our unrivaled atmosphere of collaborative exploration and entrepreneurial spirit, companies born on and around our campus have spread across the globe and transformed industries. We are teaming up with these leaders to develop our new precision health solutions—whether it’s Google or Apple or a startup that has the potential to become an icon of tomorrow.
Discoveries that protect the health and wellness of humanity. That’s innovation at Stanford Medicine.
