Diversity Visiting Student

Program Overview

University Hospitals Cleveland Medical Center's Department of Radiology is pleased to announce our Visiting Clerkship Program for Underrepresented Minorities (including African-American/Black, Native American/Alaskan Native, Pacific Islander, and Hispanic/Latino) aimed to increase diversity within the specialty of diagnostic and interventional radiology and within our department. In conjunction with the David Satcher Clerkship, we offer three sponsored opportunities for 4th year medical students to rotate through our department’s clerkship that can be tailored to the interests of the selected students. The clerkship will be offered during the months of August, September, or October in 4-week blocks.  Applicants should be training at an LCME-accredited institution or osteopathic training program. Our department looks forward to hosting you.
