Stanford Hospital and Clinics believes that a residency and fellowship program that is composed of individuals who are both highly qualified and diverse in terms of culture, class, gender, race, ethnicity, background, work and life experiences, skills, and interests is essential to the postgraduate education of physicians.  Because of its strong belief in the value of diversity, SHC especially encourages applications from women and from African Americans, Mexican Americans, Native Americans, and mainland Puerto Ricans, as well as from others whose backgrounds and experience provide additional dimensions that will enhance the postgraduate education program.
