Stanford Department of Pediatrics Funded Visiting Clerkship for Underrepresented Minority (URM) Medical Students


Eight funded visiting clerkship positions in general pediatrics and pediatric subspecialties will be available at the Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford (LPCH) from August through November for qualified applicants from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine. More information can be found on our URM web page.

Program Description

The visiting clerkship program is designed to give students a chance to experience the exceptional training that Stanford Pediatrics has to offer. In addition, it provides Stanford Pediatrics 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: General Pediatrics Wards, Renal/Rheumatology Wards, Pulmonology Wards, Gastroenterology Wards, Hematology/Oncology Wards, NICU, PICU, Cardiology Consults/Clinics, Endocrinology Clinics, or Infectious Disease Consults/Clinics.

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. Students are also invited to attend morning report and noon conference daily, as well as weekly grand rounds.
