Funded Visiting Clerkship for
Underrepresented Minority (URM) Medical Students

Six funded visiting clerkship positions in general pediatrics and pediatric subspecialties will be available at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital at Stanford (LPCH) from August through November of 2016 for qualified applicants from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine.

Program Description

The visiting clerkship program is designed to give students a chance to experience the exceptional training that LPCH has to offer.  In addition, it provides LPCH residents and attending faculty a chance to form a close working relationship with each student. 

Visiting students will spend four weeks on one of the following: Inpatient floor (general pediatrics, subspecialty, or Hematology/Oncology), NICU, or PICU.  As LPCH is a tertiary care center, students will have exposure to a variety of patients ranging from bread-and-butter pediatrics to medically complex patients.  Alternatively, students can spend the month on a Subspecialty Elective rotation (endocrinology, infectious disease, or cardiology).  Students are also invited to attend morning report and noon conference daily, as well as weekly grand rounds.
