The Department of Surgery established a Diversity Subinternship Scholarship program in 2019. We hope to renew this program as soon as COVID-19-related travel restrictions are lifted. Due to the cancellation of visiting subinternships on this campus, we were unable to offer the program this year.
The Department of Surgery has established a Diversity, Equity and Inclusion page—to view, click on the link below: https://medschool.cuanschutz.edu/surgery/about/diversity-equity-and-inclusion
