The Department of Medicine's Visiting Student Scholarship Program was first launched in 2017. It offers an opportunity for underrepresented medical students to spend four weeks in a medicine elective at Yale New Haven Hospital's York Street or Saint Raphael campuses (five minutes apart by shuttle).

This program immerses the participating students in clinical medicine and exposes them to clinical and research faculty, medical students and residents and Department and Residency program leadership. Moreover, the students participate in Yale and New Haven community activities and other social engagements.
