Stanford statement on proposed visa-duration rule

Stanford will strongly oppose a proposed federal rule issued Friday by the Department of Homeland Security, which would have wide-ranging effects on international students and scholars who hold F or J visas.

Currently, international students and scholars are allowed to remain in the United States for the full length of their program. If the proposed rule is made final, it would mean that the U.S. no longer commits to allowing them to stay for the full duration of their studies.

“While we understand the national security issues referenced in this proposal, this is another in a series of policies that make the U.S. less welcome to our international community – to the detriment of our international students and scholars, our universities, and our country’s scientific leadership and long-term economic competitiveness,” said Stanford President Marc Tessier-Lavigne. “The proposed rule creates additional stress and uncertainty for international students, scholars and their families,

Stanford master’s degree program teaches tech, business skills for health care leaders

As a health services researcher and health economist, my job is to find a way to reduce the cost of great care. I literally feel bad at the end of the day if we haven’t made progress on that goal. It’s even our tagline at my academic home, the Clinical Excellence Research Center at Stanford.

Over the years, I’ve taught and created education programs around the issue of innovation in health care — at Duke University and then at Harvard Business School — before coming to Stanford Medicine in 2018. In these classes, students realize that solutions with the strongest potential for success draw equally on expertise in business, technology and medicine.

At Duke, I built a master’s degree program to develop future health care leaders with expertise that spans these key disciplines. Now, we’re launching the Stanford Medicine version, the Master of Science in Clinical Informatics Management (MCiM).

Stanford Medicine to offer master’s degree in clinical informatics management | News Center

A new master’s degree program at the Stanford School of Medicine is designed to provide professionals in medicine, information technology and related fields with business and digital expertise to improve the quality and lower the costs of health care. 

The first class of students in the Master of Science in Clinical Informatics Management program, or MCiM, will begin their studies in June 2021. They will learn core business and technology skills and explore the operational, clinical and ethical implications of digital innovations in the health care setting.

“With its innovative curriculum and format, MCiM will provide students with the skills, knowledge and insights to bring together technology and the clinical enterprise in entirely new ways,” said Lloyd Minor, MD, dean of the School of Medicine. “COVID-19 has highlighted the need for diverse digital applications in health care, so the launch of this program could not be timelier.”
