University of Minnesota – Visiting Medical Student Scholarship for Underrepresented Minorities in Orthopedic Surgery
Deadline: December 1, 2019
The University of Minnesota is committed to achieving excellence through equity and diversity. We value having diverse views and experiences that enrich our academics and our profession as a whole. The Department of Orthopedic Surgery, in conjunction with the Medical School, has the goal of creating an atmosphere where differences are valued, leading to a culturally competent healthcare workforce qualified to meet the needs of the varied populations we serve.
Our scholarship provides financial assistance for upcoming 3rd and 4th year medical students (class of 2021 and 2022) who are planning a career in orthopedic surgery, and want to do a four-week away rotation at our site. Diverse students whose backgrounds and/or identities are underrepresented in orthopedics are encouraged to apply. The chosen applicants will be given a stipend of $1,000 to be used towards their lodging and/or travel expenses.
