Johns Hopkins – Visiting Elective Program for Students Underrepresented in Pediatrics

Deadline: March 30, 2020

The Johns Hopkins Harriet Lane Pediatric Residency Training Program strongly values diversity and
is thrilled to welcome students who are underrepresented in Pediatrics to apply for senior elective
rotations in Pediatric Cardiology, Hematology, Infectious Disease or Oncology. We are providing a
stipend of $2000 for up to six qualified students per academic year to help defray the cost of
an away rotation; $300 of this stipend will be applied towards the Johns Hopkins School of
Medicine’s registration fee for visiting students and the remainder can be applied towards
travel/housing. The stipend for students not paying for housing will be $600; $300 of this stipend
will be applied towards the registration fee. We define the following groups as underrepresented:
Black (African/African American), Latino/Hispanic (Mexican American, Cuban American, Puerto
Rican, Central American, South American), Native American, and Native Hawaiian. Applications will
be considered based on merit and availability. We will only consider applicants who wish to
complete the elective between July and November of each academic year. We anticipate we may
not be able to fund as many qualified applicants for this program as we would like and are
actively looking for funding to expand this program in the future.
