Visiting Minority Medical Students
Subsidized Visiting Elective
The goal of the Subsidized Visiting Elective is to provide training opportunites for under-represented minority medical students, as well as to increase student's consideration of the academic training programs offered at Boston Medical Center affiliate hospital of Boston University School of Medicine.
Visiting student participants will receive housing, travel reimbursement, and a modest living stipend during their month long elective. In addition, students will meet URM faculty, residents, and fellows, and have the opportunity to explore the city of Boston.
Application Deadline: April 30th 2013
How to Apply
This process requires two separate applications, the Subsidized Elective Application which awards the subsidy, and the Visiting Student Application Service (VSAS) which allows students to register for an elective.
A completed Subsidized Elective application consists of the following:
Please submit your application and resume/cv to our office via mail, fax, or email. Official transcripts and Dean's Letters are to be sent by school officials. (See top right column for contact information)
Notification of application status will be provided via email by mid-May. Students will need to apply through the Visiting Students Application Service (VSAS) which opens for BUSM in May.
Students are responsible for arranging their elective with the clinical department. The Minority Physician Recruitment Program will provide guidance and support to ensure accepted students secure the appropriate elective. Please note: rotations should be scheduled between the months of August-November.
