University of Oklahoma College of Medicine – Diversity Scholar Visiting Medical Student Elective in Dermatology

Deadline: June 30, 2021

As a joint venture between the Office of Diversity, Inclusion, and Community Engagement and the Oklahoma University Health Sciences Center Department of Dermatology, we are pleased to offer the Diversity Scholar Visiting Medical Student Elective. This elective is seeking applicants who come from an underrepresented-in-medicine background and have demonstrated vision and commitment to improving the health status of diverse patient populations. Students must display genuine interest in exploring issues of social determinants of health, population medicine, access to care, and social justice as it relates to dermatology. We seek to increase diversity and cultural competency in the healthcare workforce and to promote interest in academic medicine.

What are the Expectations of the Program?

  • Complete a four (4) week elective in clinical dermatology in Oklahoma City, OK.
  • A stipend of $1500 will be provided to help cover housing, travel, food, and other living and associated expenses.
  • Mentorship with select dermatology faculty members and residents to provide career and professional guidance as well as a personal connection to the community. Emphasis will be placed on the residency application process.
  • Scholarly production of dermatologic issues related to skin of color and associated practice gaps as well as social determinants of health.
  • Networking opportunities within the department and medical college at large.
  • Participation in daily clinics and didactics and resident interaction.
