Funded Visiting Electives for Underrepresented Minorities

Update (6/2020): Thank you for your interest in our funded visiting student program. The University of Washington School of Medicine, under the recommendation of the Coalition for Physician Accountability, has made the decision to not allow away or visiting medical student rotations for the 2020-2021 academic year. We still encourage and welcome your application to our Pediatric residency program.

We are happy to answer questions regarding our program and connect you with individuals with shared interest from our residency diversity committee. Please email us with the subject title “Resident Diversity Committee”.

Program Description

The University of Washington/Seattle Children’s Hospital has hosted funded visiting electives for underrepresented minority applicants since 2005. Visiting students spend four weeks in Seattle participating as an acting intern or on our Nephrology elective. Additionally, students are paired with resident and faculty mentors during their rotation and are guaranteed an interview for our Pediatrics residency program at UW. At this time, we plan to resume our funded visiting electives program in the 2021-2022 academic year, with rotations available July through December.
