Supporting Programs

The following programs are supported by the College of Medicine's Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Diversity Interview Day

This is a concentrated recruitment effort that invites underrepresented minority applicants to attend a special program the day prior to their medical school interview. This program allows the applicants to interact with medical students, alumni and faculty as well as the leadership of the Office of Diversity and Inclusion.

Minority Visiting Elective

Underrepresented in Medicine Visiting Elective Program
One of our diversity goals is to increase racial and ethnic diversity reflecting the population of the Cincinnati and surrounding community that we serve. To that end, the Office of Diversity and Inclusion is now sponsoring the University of Cincinnati and Cincinnati Children’s Underrepresented in Medicine Visiting Elective Program. We will sponsor up to 12 funded visiting elective positions, space permitting, available from July through November for applicants from backgrounds underrepresented in medicine. This program will provide a stipend up to $1500, to help defray the cost of an away rotation, to 4th year medical students attending a U.S. medical school from backgrounds that are underrepresented in medicine including Black/African American, Hispanic/Latino, Native American/Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian/Pacific Islander.

Our program includes a 4-week clinical rotation in the departments of Anesthesia, Dermatology, Emergency Medicine, Family Medicine, Family Medicine-Psychiatry, General Surgery and subspecialties (Cardiothoracic Surgery, Transplantation, Urology, Vascular Surgery), Internal Medicine, Medicine-Pediatrics, Neurology, Neurosurgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology, Ophthalmology, Orthopedic Surgery, Otolaryngology, Pathology, Pediatrics, Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation, Psychiatry, Radiation Oncology, Radiology.
