Acting Internship Elective Program
This program is a visiting student elective in the psychiatry clinical departments which provides fourth year URiM students from other medical schools with housing and a $1500 stipend to cover travel and living expenses during their month-long rotations. 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.More information can be found here.
