Subinternships are an opportunity for medical students to acquire clinical experience with a hospital generally as a precursor to applying for a residency at the same hospital. To be eligible for a subinternship, visiting students must be in their 3rd, 4th, or 5th year of medical school, and have at least six months of prior clinical training.
Through the Yale School of Medicine, Yale Urology offers a four-week urology subinternship which provides an in-depth view of the various sub-specialties within urology including uro-oncology, minimally invasive (laparoscopic) urology, endo-urology, neuro-urology, female urology, and pediatric urology. The sub-intern will be a part of the urologic team and actively participate in the clinic, the OR, and on rounds.
Subintern Scholarship OpportunitiesSince 1999, Yale Urology has offered scholarships to underrepresented minority visiting students. We are pleased to announce that for 2021, a scholarship fund of $4,500 is available for up to three underrepresented minority visiting students seeking to participate in a subinternship.
Each $1,500 scholarship will help off-set the cost of the visiting student application fee, travel, and lodging. Interested students will go through a scholarship application process, and once accepted, they will provide receipts and/or proof of purchase to be reimbursed.
For more information about the scholarships and how to apply, please contact Carolyn Hayden, Program Coordinator.
