Anesthesiology Diversity Visiting Student Sub-Internship Program

The Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Anesthesiology's Diversity Visiting Student Sub-Internship Program is a funded program for fourth year medical students interested in anesthesiology. The program gives students who are traditionally underrepresented in anesthesiology the opportunity to rotate at NewYork-Presbyterian/Weill Cornell Medical Center. The sub-internship will take place for four weeks during August 2020. 

Intern at Weill Cornell Medicine Department of Anesthesiology 

For the first two weeks, students will work alongside anesthesiology residents, and be exposed to all facets of their work within the Department of Anesthesiology. The third week will be spent at the Hospital for Special Surgery Anesthesiology Department, an immersive regional anesthesia program. During the final week, students will be assigned to an anesthesiology subspecialty of their preference: ICU, regional, pain management, or obstetrics. Students will attend daily housestaff didactics, a curriculum recognized as an Apple Distinguished Program for innovation, leadership and educational excellence. 


Who Should Apply?

The program is open to applicants who belong to groups that are recognized as historically underrepresented in the health profession including: African American, American Indian, Alaska Native, Hispanic American and Pacific Islander. The rotation is four weeks in duration and is available to students who can meet the requirements of Weill Cornell Medical College.
