We are excited to be welcoming our newest interns for Project SEARCH this week. These interns will be spending the school year with us working in various hospital departments including linen, pharmacy, housekeeping, food services, sterile processing & interventional platform here at Stanford Health Care as well as Stanford Children's Health | Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford learning job skills to hopefully transition into competitive employment upon graduation from the program. Project SEARCH serves young people with significant intellectual and developmental disabilities. The goal for each program participant is competitive employment. To reach that goal, the program provides real-life work experience combined with training in employability and independent-living skills to help young people with significant disabilities make successful transitions to productive adult life.

The latest conversations about Healthcare




Certified Medical Assistant

I recently discovered Certified Surgical Technologist. It seems to be what I’m looking for in terms of a career (ability to work 3x12s, little patient interaction). I am used to standing on my feet all day so this I am not concerned about. If you are a CST what do you like about it? What don’t you like about it?

      Difficult Interview

      I applied online. I interviewed at Stanford Health Care (Palo Alto, CA)


      Difficult questions but relaxing and supportive interview environment. Make sure to always remember ABCs as they will ask patient scenario questions along with behavioral questions. There was also plenty of time to ask questions at the end.
