Minority Visiting Elective

Underrepresented in Medicine Visiting Elective Program

One of our diversity goals is to increase racial and ethnic diversity reflecting the population of the Cincinnati and surrounding community that we serve. To that end, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion is now sponsoring the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Underrepresented in Medicine Visiting Elective Program. We will sponsor up to 12 funded visiting elective positions, space permitting, available from July through October for applicants from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine. This program will provide a stipend up to $1500, to help defray the cost of an away rotation, to 4th year medical students attending a U.S. medical school from backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine including Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American/Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.

Our program includes a 4-week clinical rotation in the departments of Anesthesia, Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Family Medicine-Psychiatry, General Surgery and subspecialties (Cardiothoracic Surgery, Transplantation, Urology, Vascular Surgery), Internal Medicine, Medicine-Pediatrics, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedic Surgery, Otolaryngology, Pathology, Pediatrics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry, Radiation Oncology, Radiology.
