Medical Student Elective Diversity/Disparity Scholarship 4th Year Clerkship Application
Kaiser Permanente (KP) provides population-based health care and in conjunction with KP’s internationally-respected Division of Research, actively mitigates health disparities in our richly diverse California East Bay communities (across the bay from San Francisco).
At KP we are deeply committed to equitable care of our patient population. Our East Bay diversity includes differences in living conditions, exposure to inequities & injustices, as well as race, culture, religion, language, age, and gender. KP East Bay seeks a diverse workforce that represents this myriad of cultures, ethnicities, and languages that we serve, which strengthens our patient care and provides a more culturally robust educational experience for our residents. Kaiser Permanente is committed to inclusion for all of our patients, employees, and learners.
The KP East Bay residency programs aim to train a diverse group of resident physicians including traditionally underrepresented groups and minorities who represent and care for our East Bay community. We sponsor a 4th-year medical student rotation program to try to meet these goals. Students who are interested in the goals of culturally humble care are encouraged to apply. A needs-based scholarship of up to $ 2,000 may be made available to you. All applicants must apply thru VSAS for a rotation and upload the scholarship application under supplemental documents.
