Fostering community partnership provides a foundation for the commitments that are essential to the department including clinical innovation, educational excellence, translational research, and professionalism and leadership development. By integrating community engagement strategies throughout the department’s efforts, we create opportunities for co-learning and collaboration within the Department, across Stanford University, and beyond. Our partners have years of experience developing a wide variety of treatment, educational and ingenious services for those they serve. Faculty and trainees in the department feel privileged to have the opportunity to contribute to their ongoing efforts. Community engagement effectively aligns the mission of the department with the surrounding area, our nation and the world thereby reinforcing opportunities for partnership for decades to come.
