Academic Scholarship for EM Elective for Underrepresented Minorities at Orlando Health

Orlando Health Emergency Medicine Residency program is committed to fostering diversity in our workplace. We are interested in continuing to recruit residents from diverse backgrounds. To this end the Emergency Medicine Residency at Orlando Health is pleased to offer a travel scholarship for underrepresented minority visiting students. It is specifically designed for 4th year medical students who are interested in pursuing a residency in emergency medicine. This scholarship is for up to $1500 to reimburse travel and housing during the 4-week elective.

Our clerkship experience features an active student-centric curriculum, with dedicated teaching residents each block. The teaching resident is a senior resident who guides, educates, and assists rotating medical students. Students are scheduled to work 15 8-hour clinical shifts. They will also participate in a simulation and procedure lab, receive hands-on ultrasound training, and have the option for one EMS ride-along under the direct supervision of an EMS fellowship-trained attending. Shifts are primarily in the adult Emergency Department at ORMC but do include several shifts in the Pediatric Emergency Department at Arnold Palmer Hospital, a level 1 pediatric trauma center. The Arnold Palmer Hospital is on the same campus as ORMC and requires no additional traveling.

To be eligible, students must be:

  • 4th year medical students in good standing at an accredited US medical school
  • Considered an underrepresented minority in medicine
  • US citizen or permanent resident
  • Available to do the 4-week elective between June and November of their 4th year of medical school
