SMYSP On Hiatus for Summer 2020
In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, Stanford has determined that on-campus residential programs should be shifted to an online-only format or otherwise be canceled. Unfortunately, the Stanford Medical Youth Science Program (SMYSP) residential program is on hiatus for summer 2020. We look forward to providing updates about future SMYSP programming.
A Tight-Knit Community
The residence has its own lounge, computer cluster, laundry facility, and common area. All rooms are equipped with an extra-long twin bed for each participant as well as window coverings, desks and chairs, bookcases, dressers, and wardrobes. In addition, students are provided with laptops for their studies for the duration of the program.
Housing & Dining
SMYSP provides all meals for participants. All meals are prepared by an in-house chef and include vegetarian and vegan options at every meal. Students can also look forward to catered meals for special events.
Curriculum & Activities
Evening and weekend activities accommodate a variety of participants’ interests and a talent show, a dance, carnival, a campfire night, and other special events organized by our dedicated team of residential SMYSP Counselors.
Past field trips include: the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art (SFMOMA), the de Young Museum, the Legion of Honor, Capitola, Muir Woods, the Monterey Bay Aquarium, and the California Academy of Sciences.
The community at SMYSP felt like home because for the first time, I met people who share similar humble beginnings and interest in science. Everyone was so open to sharing their stories and being there for one another whenever we needed it.
