UI Visiting Student Scholars Program

The Department of Urology participates in the University of Iowa Visiting Student Scholars Program, which encourages applications from medical students who are from underrepresented populations as defined by the National Institutes of Health. This program demonstrates the commitment of University of Iowa Health Care to diversify the health care workforce and to improve the delivery of health care to all patient populations through patient care, research, and teaching.
