The newly launched Center for Digital Health (CDH) aims to connect Stanford Medicine faculty with exciting new opportunities in the digital health space. In order to make those connections efficiently and appropriately, we have created a short survey to better understand our faculty’s current interests and areas of expertise in digital health. We will use this personalized information to matchmake faculty with internal and external digital health opportunities that are most relevant to them.
Faculty and instructors - please take a moment to complete the short survey here. If you have any questions or would like to learn more about the CDH, please email us at email@example.com or visit cdh.stanford.edu.
