What is the format of the course?
We have two formats. The first is a 4 day condensed workshop (~30 hours) that you take for no credit, held on campus. The second is MED 130, a quarter-long course offered over 10-11 weeks, through the Medical School you can take for academic credit (1 unit). To do this, go to explore courses, and search for MED 130 to register. In both cases, you must submit an application, which is available here. The homepage of this website will let you know our next available course.
How do I apply?
Check the homepage for upcoming course dates. If you want to take that course, apply here. For the MED 130 (credit option), please register on Axess as well. If you would like to be notified of future course dates, sign up here. You can always email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions.
Do I need to attend every session of the course?
Yes. Each session is built on the previous one. Since most sessions are experiential, it's hard to make-up for it. Therefore, we ask that students attend every session, from beginning to end. For the quarter long course, there is some flexibility with finding dates that work for the entire group. In some cases, if you are taking the quarter long course MED 130, and we have a condensed version going on around the same time, you can make up the classes you missed by attending some of the days of the condensed workshop. This is done on a case by case basis, if the instructor thinks it makes sense and is appropriate.
How many people have taken the course at Stanford?
Approximately 300-400 students have taken it in the last 5 years.
Who are yesplus's partners at Stanford?
Yesplus is affiliated with the Associated Students of Stanford University (ASSU) Vaden's Health Center. We are also part of the student group the Happiness Collective (HapCo).
Is there a yesplus student club?
There is no YESplus student club. We are part of a larger student wellness club called the Happiness Collective. The Happiness Collective is a collective of Stanford students who aim to spread happiness and compassion on campus. It made sense for us to join them. If you have any questions about HapCo, please contact Maria Molfino at email@example.com.
