Harvard Medical School – Visiting Clerkship Program

Deadline: Rotating monthly deadline dates for 2018-2019 academic year

The Visiting Clerkship Program (VCP), sponsored by the Minority Faculty Development Program of the Harvard Medical School (HMS) Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership, provides support for fourth-year and qualified third-year medical students from groups underrepresented in medicine (African-American, Hispanic/Latino and American Indian/Alaska Native) to participate in the HMS Exchange Clerkship Program.

VCP is designed to:

  • Increase medical student awareness of opportunities in academic medicine;
  • To increase student consideration of academic training programs for internship and residency; and especially
  • To increase the number of students applying to HMS-affiliated hospital training programs from groups underrepresented in medicine.

Prospective students are encouraged to download the HMS Training Directory, which describes each of the HMS teaching hospitals and research facilities, as well as summaries of training programs in each area of specialty.

To apply, please see VCP’s brochure.
