Cedars-Sinai Diversity Program


Arthur I. Johnson, MD, Visiting Clerkship Scholarship

The goal of this program is to increase medical student awareness of opportunities in academic and community medicine. We seek to support five qualified fourth-year students from historically underrepresented minority groups and from socioeconomically disadvantaged backgrounds. Overall, this program will improve student exposure to Cedars-Sinai and graduate medical leadership and increase the number of students applying to training programs.
