Transitioning your Medical & Mental Health Care

If you have a health condition that requires continued medical care we recommend that you speak to your primary care clinician or specialist prior to coming to Stanford in order to plan your transition of care to the university setting. 


An early visit to the Vaden Health Center Travel Clinic should be on your “To Do List” at least six to eight weeks before leaving. The Travel Medicine Clinic at Stanford is open to Stanford students, faculty, staff, spouses, partners and alumni.
