Diversity Sub-Internship

The Diversity Visiting Student Internships Program is a funded program designed to give students with a diverse background a chance to experience the exceptional training that the University of Washington has to offer. Students will spend four weeks on one of the teams at Seattle Children’s Hospital, University of Washington Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center and/or Puget Sound Veteran’s Administrative Hospital. Students will participate in all the duties and functions of a medical student intern. They will also be expected to attend all scheduled house staff teaching sessions and conferences.

Please see Visiting Student Clerkship Opportunities.
