Weill Cornell Medicine – Virtual Pediatrics Minority Visiting Scholars Program

Deadline: April 30, 2021

The Departments of Pediatrics is pleased to announce the Pediatrics Minority Visiting Scholars
Program for the 2021-22 academic year. The purpose of this program is to provide 4th year
medical students from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine exposure to general and
subspecialty pediatric care in a tertiary medical center. In addition, we seek to increase diversity
and cultural competency in the health care workforce, and to promote interest in academic
medicine. The scholars program is seeking applicants from underrepresented backgrounds
(URiM) who have demonstrated vision and commitment to improving the health status of diverse
patient populations. The Department of Pediatrics will select and award outstanding medical
students who will have completed the core clinical clerkships at a LCME accredited institution.
The award will includes:

  • Housing for the 4 week rotation
  • A stipend of $1,500 to cover other living expenses
  • Opportunities to meet with selected faculty members
  • Networking opportunities within the department and medical college at large
