University of Washington-Seattle Children’s Hospital Funded URM Visiting Electives – (Application Deadline 07/06/2018)

Posted by on Tuesday, March 20, 2018 in Uncategorized .

The University of Washington (UW)/Seattle Children’s Hospital is pleased to offer funded fourth year medical student rotations in Pediatrics from July 2018 through December 2018 for qualified applicants from backgrounds traditionally underrepresented in medicine. Funding includes up to $2500 for reimbursement of travel, housing, meals, and application fees. We have offered this program for over 10 years and are looking forward to hosting a new group of qualified students!

Program Description

Our visiting student program is designed to give students the opportunity to experience the exceptional training that the University of Washington School of Medicine has to offer. Students will spend four weeks either on one of the ward teams at Seattle Children's Hospital as an acting intern or as a Nephrology elective student caring for patients in the clinic and on the wards. Other subspecialty services may be considered based on availability. They will care for a variety of patients ranging the spectrum from general pediatrics to medically complex in our tertiary care center.

In addition to providing an enriching educational experience, this unique opportunity affords students rotating at Seattle Children's Hospital, the primary training site for the UW Pediatric Residency, a chance to form close working relationships with residents, fellows, and attendings. Qualified applicants will be invited to interview for our residency in Pediatrics at the UW during their rotation in Seattle.
