Building for Digital Health

Course Details And Deadlines

Building for Digital Health will involve students from the CS department and faculty from the Stanford SoM. Please review the guidelines below to determine if you’re a good fit for the course.

Students Requirements

Background creating iOS mobile applications. Background working with other platforms is a plus, including Android development or React Native. Note that you will have to translate some or all of your knowledge to iOS (Swift).

Highly-recommended: CS193P

Recommended: CS193A, CS47, CS142

Some background with web servers or willingness to learn about web server project implementations is preferred. This can be as simple as creating a RESTful API using Golang or JavaScript.

Faculty Requirements

All Stanford faculty, including Clinical Educators, may apply. Clinical and non-clinical postdoctoral scholars are encouraged to apply with a PI Stanford faculty member. The course requires a commitment to meet multiple times during spring and summer to complete course planning and project preparation activities, including need validation, developing or enhancing user/technology specifications, clinical study design, and IRB submission. Then, during fall quarter 2019, faculty must be available to meet weekly with their assigned student team to provide consistent support and direction on the project. Faculty should have strong desire and commitment to working with students.
