Stanford's Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery hosts the Science, Technology, and Reconstructive Surgery (STaRS) internship each summer free-of-cost to 15-30 selected undergraduate and high school students. The interns spend 7-weeks mastering basic lab techniques, participating in research projects, and presenting their work all under the mentorship of experienced researchers.

The goal of the STaRS Internship is to provide a world-class experience that creates the next generation of biomedical innovators who will discover new treatments and procedures in the fields of plastic surgery and regenerative medicine. Our program is committed to teach, mentor and encourage young students at the earliest stages of their careers.

A typical week will consist of 4 days in lab with 1-day non-lab-based activities which have included touring Anatomy Lab, Plastic Surgery lecture, scavenger hunt, and team building activities.
