Visiting 4th Year Medical Student Clerkship

The Chairman of Medicine and the Chair of the Diversity Council invites 4th year medical students who are from groups under-represented in medicine, including under-represented minorities and persons from disadvantaged backgrounds, who intend to pursue a career in internal medicine or its subspecialities, to apply for our visiting clerkship program. The clerkship exposes medical students to career opportunities available in an academic medical center and includes: an assigned faculty mentor, exposure to research programs (emphasizing those focused on underserved populations), service learning opportunities through community outreach programs and assistance in preparing for the residency interviews. A stipend is provided on a highly competitive basis. NOTE: Clinical electives are only available to medical students who are attending either LCME approved schools (U.S. and Canadian medical schools) or schools with which we have a formal affiliation.
