What We Do

Our mission is simple: We promote the research, clinical and educational enterprise of Stanford University School of Medicine.

Even as the media ecosystem has rapidly evolved, our passion for delivering high quality, creative communications services remains as strong as ever.

While our mission is simple, we specialize in the complex: Staff members in the Office of Communication and Public Affairs have more than 150 years combined experience communicating technical and innovative ideas to targeted audiences across a wide range of media. Our staff has deep experience covering medical education, health-care policy, medicine and basic science research.

In addition to providing high quality coverage of the work happening at the School of Medicine, our office provides a broad range of services to School affiliates including media relations, social media strategic consulting, and media training.

And if you work in media and need sources for your stories, whether you're telling them on a broadcast network, newspaper or on a blog, we can help get you access to the expertise you need to make those stories as compelling as possible.

We look forward to working with you.
