Acting Internship (AI) Elective Program

This program is a visiting student elective in the clinical departments which provides fourth year URiM students from other medical schools a $1500 stipend for travel and living expenses during their month-long rotations. Free student housing availability is limited. Funding is provided by the individual departments. The goal of this program is to encourage URiM students to favorably consider WCM for residencies. Participants work closely with the clinical team in the selected department and are paired with a faculty mentor, also meeting with the residency program director.   The program was initiated by the Office of Diversity and Inclusion with participation by the Departments of Surgery and Pediatrics in 2017.  For information please contact the diversity office at  646.962.9916 or
