SIRUM is reimagining US healthcare: how access impacts health (outcomes) and wealth (economic mobility)

Summer fellowship opportunities available for students (undergrad + graduate) interested in the intersection of healthcare, technology and the social sector.

SIRUM drives the future of healthcare by connecting people with surplus medications. Our goal is to leverage the ~$10B of surplus that goes to waste every year to improve health equity for families who need it most.


We believe everyone deserves the medications they need to stay healthy. We believe in affordable and transparent pricing. We believe in putting families’ health first, not profit.

Founded at Stanford University, we’re a non-profit, for-impact, startup. Our platform supplies $250,000 worth of medications every week. Our network reaches hundreds of medicine donors from half the states in the country.  We’re building a national solution to the drug pricing epidemic.

SIRUM has been featured on The TODAY Show, The New York Times, and Forbes, and has philanthropic investments from Y Combinator, Draper Richard Kaplan Foundation and athenahealth.

Operations & Special Projects Fellow (Multiple summer positions available. Based in Palo Alto)

This is an intense startup role with no typical day. You will gain exposure to every functional part of the organization, including growth, operations, policy, marketing and development, in addition to the industries we intersect with as a health tech + social enterprise, including pharmacies, health facilities like nursing homes, community health centers, free clinics, government, and tech.

Specialized roles also available in:

Our Student Fellows will be:

Passionate about our vision to get every pill to a person in need, our belief in technology to correct this inefficiency, and our eagerness to build a national solution.

A great project manager. You excel at organizing yourself and others, defining project goals and outlining milestones. Then, you do it. You execute fairly independently and deliver on-time.

Detail-oriented. You can implement the rigour needed to work in healthcare where the work you do impacts the lives of others. You can get to 100% when needed.

A Problem solver. You enjoy digging into the complexity of problems. You understand the need to “go down the rabbit hole” to learn why something isn’t working to find a solution, not a bandaid.

Resourceful. You have no problem rolling up your sleeves to do what it takes to make things work.

We are only accepting students that can apply for their own funding source (e.g. university programs, work-study) or volunteer interns at this time.
