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 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, 2022.
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 August 1, 2022, to January 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.
Nemours is committed to the health and well-being of all children, families and our associates. Because racism is detrimental to the health of children and families, and does not align with our mission, Nemours created the Diversity, Anti-Racism, Inclusion, Value and Health Equity (D.R.I.V.E.) Task Force and has made the following declaration:
We define being an anti-racism organization as creating an environment where all children, families and associates, regardless of race or the color of their skin, know they are valued. We challenge ourselves to identify, discuss, understand and address racism and its impact on children’s health, and to correct systemic racism and any resulting inequities within Nemours. We are committed to combatting racial disparities in the United States through all of the many factors that impact the health of children. This includes working to achieve equitable health outcomes for all children, regardless of race, by addressing the social determinants of health and providing equitable opportunities including but not limited to medical care.
