Stipends for Underrepresented Students

The Feinberg Office of Diversity and Inclusion works closely with the McGaw Medical Center to diversify residency training programs at McGaw and our affiliated hospitals. Stipends are available to defray expenses for visiting clerkship participants who are from groups traditionally underrepresented in medicine.

I can honestly say the visiting student program is the reason why I chose to attend Northwestern for residency, and receiving the diversity stipend made that rotation possible. The program afforded me the chance to experience firsthand the city of Chicago, the hospital campus, and the residency program itself. The stipend also showed me the importance that Northwestern places on recruiting and supporting efforts to improve diversity by putting monetary support directly behind those efforts.”
