Department of Radiation Oncology Diversity & Inclusion Clerkship Opportunity for Underrepresented Medical Students (D.I.C.O.M.S.)

The Department of Radiation Oncology is pleased to welcome applications for our D.I.C.O.M.S. program, which is designed to give fourth-year medical students from diverse backgrounds the experience of rotating as a sub-intern in our department for a 4-week block from August through October, following WUSM’s elective calendar schedule.

The program is open to minority applicants who belong to diverse groups that have been traditionally disadvantaged, underrepresented, or inadequately supported in medical training. We seek applications from minorities which have been historically underrepresented in the field of Radiation Oncology including African American, American Indian, Alaska Native, Hispanic American and Pacific Islander. We also seek applications from sexual and gender minorities such as those who identify as LGBTQI+. Finally, we seek applications from students whose pathway to medical training includes substantial personal or financial adversity.

Department support for participants includes a $2000.00 stipend to help offset the cost of travel, housing, fees, VSAS application fee, and incidental expenses.

The application deadline is June 1, 2021. For more details, visit the Department of Radiation Oncology’s website. Please note you must scroll down the page to find information on the D.I.C.O.M.S. program.
