In addition, the Program will expose students to clinical and research faculty, medical students and residents, and Department and Residency Program leadership. Moreover, the students will participate in Yale and New Haven community activities, and other social engagements. Eligible students include fourth-year medical students in good standing who are enrolled in a U.S. LCME accredited allopathic institution (enrolled in a medical degree granting program) and who are from URM groups. These groups include Hispanic (Mexican, Chicano, or Mainland Puerto Rican), Other Hispanic (Cuban, Dominican, or other), Black/African-American (not of Hispanic origin), Native American, or Asian Pacific Islander.
