Our vision at Nemours is to create the healthiest generations of children. We will accomplish this by going well beyond medicine to improve the world in which every child lives. Part of that commitment is helping build the culturally competent, diverse, health care workforce necessary to improve outcomes and health equity.
Nemours Under-Represented in Medicine Visiting Rotation Program invites fourth-year students from an accredited U.S. or Puerto Rican medical school with diverse backgrounds or underrepresented in medicine to apply. Nemours offers a competitive stipend to offset travel and accommodations. Applicants must be in good academic standing and the deadline for application is May 31, 2023.
We define underrepresented in medicine as any racial, ethnic, religious, socioeconomic, or ability status group whose numbers in medicine are not reflective of that group’s population of the United States. Rotation options include Hospital Medicine, Social Determinants of Health, Gastroenterology (GI), Hematology/ Oncology (Heme/Onc), Emergency Medicine (ED), Pediatric Intensive Care (PICU), Infectious Disease and Pulmonology. Rotations can be scheduled from July 1, 2023, to October 31, 2023.
Visiting students are fully integrated into clinical and educational opportunities, including opportunities to meet with program leadership, faculty, and residents for mentoring and discussion of career interests. Visiting students who complete all of the rotation requirements are guaranteed an interview with Nemours.
Attendance at all resident didactics, diversity focused topic discussion sessions, House Staff and a Faculty Mentor, attendance at organizational level diversity, equity, and inclusion meetings, networking and more.
