Visiting Student Scholarship to Enhance Healthcare Workforce Diversity

The Department of Obstetrics, Gynecology & Reproductive Sciences at Yale School of Medicine is excited to announce a scholarship for eligible students to spend four weeks in an Ob/Gyn sub-internship or elective. This program immerses the participating students in Ob/Gyn and exposes them to clinical and research faculty, medical students, residents, the residency program director, and our department chairman. The recipient will enroll in a 4-week sub-internship between June – December and will be assigned a faculty mentor.

The visiting student electives available for this program are listed on the AAMC Visiting Student Application System (VSAS) website. For detailed elective descriptions of the OB/GYN electives and sub-internships, visit Yale School of Medicine/MD Program/Visiting Student Electives.
