SHIFT is a student group at Stanford that empowers students to move healthcare forward. We aim to promote and cultivate health innovation on campus by creating a forum for developers, entrepreneurs, and pre-health students to collaborate. As a student initiative, we want to create an environment to equip students for the growing intersection of healthcare and technology.
