University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Medicine – Underrepresented in Medicine Senior Scholarship Program
Deadline: May 1, 2018
Fostering an inclusive environment that values differing perspectives and experiences is essential to the mission of the University of Alabama School of Medicine located in Birmingham. In line with this mission, the Department of Pediatrics (DOP) at the University of Alabama at Birmingham (UAB), with support of UAB’s Office of Diversity and Multicultural Affairs (ODMA), is eager to announce that applications are now being accepted for the Underrepresented in Medicine Senior Scholarship Program for Pediatrics. The DOP feels strongly that promotion of cultural diversity and equal opportunity enhances learning opportunities and leads to improved patient care.
The Underrepresented in Medicine Senior Scholarship Program provides funding for visiting medical students to participate in four-week clinical rotations in the DOP located at Children’s of Alabama. The DOP’s goal is to improve awareness of and accessibility to training opportunities in Pediatrics at UAB amongst medical students of diverse cultural, socioeconomic, and ethnic backgrounds. Students from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine, including African American, Hispanic/Latino, and Native American, in addition to students whose backgrounds may bring a unique dimension to our training program are encouraged to apply.
