The Diversity Visiting Student Program is a funded program designed to give students from diverse backgrounds the opportunity to experience the outstanding training that is available in the Department of Diagnostic Radiology at the University of Washington and to experience life in Seattle, a thriving, dynamic, beautiful city with mild, dry, sunny summers.Our clinical sites in Seattle serve a diverse group of patients in a five-state region (Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, Idaho) that encompasses 27% of the landmass of the United States. We care for a substantial population of urban and rural under-served patients from a variety of socioeconomic and racial/ethnic backgrounds.In the Diagnostic Radiology Clerkship, students will spend four weeks rotating through four services (including Body Imaging, Chest Imaging, Emergency Radiology, Gastrointestinal/Genitourinary Fluoroscopy, Musculoskeletal Imaging, Neuroradiology, Nuclear Medicine, Pediatric Radiology) at three of the five major teaching institutions that the encompass the department’s activities: UW Medical Center, Harborview Medical Center, and Seattle Children’s Hospital. This will give the visiting student multiple options for experiencing how we care for a wide variety of patients in the nationally recognized tertiary care centers that we service. If space is available, students may opt instead for a single four-week rotation in Interventional Radiology at UW Medical Center and/or Harborview Medical Center. Overall, students will participate in the daily clinical services on site, and will also have the opportunity to attend resident teaching sessions and conferences and, for the Diagnostic Radiology Clerkship, didactics specifically geared for medical students.
