The Visiting Clerkship Program (VCP) is sponsored by the Minority Faculty Development Program of the Harvard Medical School (HMS) Office for Diversity Inclusion and Community Partnership. This program provides support for fourth and qualified third year medical students from groups underrepresented in medicine as defined by the AAMC, including, but not limited to, African-American, Hispanic/Latino and American Indian/Alaska Native, to participate in the 4-week HMS Exchange Clerkship Program.
The program provides housing and up to $400 for transportation to Boston.
VCP participants are assigned a faculty advisor and offered opportunities to network with HMS faculty, house staff and students. A faculty/student dinner seminar is held during each rotation. In addition, participants have access to HMS and the HMS Countway Library, as well as hospital seminars and workshops.
