Stanford’s Clinical Observation and Medical Transcription (COMET) Fellowship is a one-year post-baccalaureate program designed for highly motivated students interested in pursuing a career in the health professions. We are looking for academically strong candidates with excellent interpersonal and leadership skills. We offer fellows an intensive, direct patient care experience before applying to medical school, physician assistant school, nursing school, or other graduate school in the healthcare field.
Medical scribing is a unique, unparalleled opportunity for prospective healthcare students to build clinical experience by observing and participating directly in patient care. Fellows are trained in medical terminology and clinical documentation. They work side-by-side with faculty physicians as certified medical scribes, seeing patients together at Stanford Health Care Clinics. The COMET program provides fellows with invaluable career mentorship from Stanford faculty physicians, as well as the opportunity to engage in research or other scholarly pursuits.
Prospective fellows can apply to be a medical scribe in the following specialties:
Family Medicine, Internal Medicine, Geriatrics, Palliative care, Cardiology, Endocrinology, Dermatology, Gastroenterology, Infectious Diseases, Radiation Oncology, Addiction Medicine, and Gynecology.
Our team is excited to meet prospective applicants! If you would like to learn more about our program and/or ask questions, we encourage you to join us for an upcoming information session. Dates for upcoming information sessions include:
