Visiting Student Clinical Scholars Program

Duke Office of Diversity & Inclusion

Many medical students explore residency programs by participating in clerkships at their schools of choice. If one assumes that the resident pool is representative of the pool from which fellows and faculty are mentored and recruited, then a strategic investment in diversifying the pool of residents holds the potential to positively impact the diversity of our fellows and faculty. Our 4th Year Medical Students Visiting Clinical Scholars Program for underrepresented minorities and socioeconomically disadvantaged students is an important step forward in this direction. The Visiting Clinical Scholars Program is currently offered in the Department of Orthopaedic Surgery. Please visit their website for detailed information and application process.
