Yale School of Medicine – Visiting Program for Students Underrepresented in Medicine (YVPSUM)
Deadline: Rolling basis
The Yale Visiting Program for Students Underrepresented in Medicine (YVPSUM) was inaugurated in 2017. It offers an opportunity for URM medical students to spend four weeks in a medicine elective at Yale New Haven Hospital’s York Street or Saint Raphael campuses (5 minutes apart by shuttle). This program immerses the participating students in clinical medicine and exposes students them to clinical and research faculty, medical students and residents and Department and Residency program leadership. Moreover, the students participate in Yale and New Haven community activities and other social engagements. Eligible students include fourth-year medical students in good standing who are enrolled in a U.S. LCME accredited allopathic institution (enrolled in a medical degree granting program) and who are from URM groups. These groups include Hispanic (Mexican, Chicano or mainland Puerto Rican), other Hispanic (Cuban, Dominican or other), Black/African-American (not of Hispanic origin), Native American or Asian Pacific Islander.
The program offers a stipend, covers application fee and engages the student with department of medicine leadership, residents, medical students and the New Haven community.
