Stanford Department of Pediatrics Funded Visiting Clerkship for Underrepresented Minority Medical Students

Deadline: April 13, 2018

The visiting clerkship program is designed to give students a chance to experience the exceptional training that Stanford Pediatrics has to offer. In addition, it provides Stanford Pediatrics residents and attending faculty a chance to form a close working relationship with each student.

Visiting students will spend four weeks on one of the following: General Pediatrics Wards, Renal/Rheumatology Wards, Pulmonology Wards, Gastroenterology Wards, Hematology/Oncology Wards, NICU, PICU, Cardiology Consults/Clinics, Endocrinology Clinics, or Infectious Disease Consults/Clinics.

As LPCH is a tertiary care center, students will have exposure to a variety of patients ranging from bread- and-butter pediatrics to medically complex patients. Students are also invited to attend morning report and noon conference daily, as well as weekly grand rounds.
