International Scholars Program
The International Scholars Program hosts international pediatricians, nurses, and other health care allied professionals to observe our clinical activities and multi-disciplinary teams, and interact with our families and communities.
Because of government regulations, international scholars may only observe clinical activities, and may not provide clinical care. International scholars may participate in bedside teaching, grand rounds, journal clubs, case management meetings, protocol review and development, and other non-patient care activities.
The International Scholars Program is a non-credited short-term program; it cannot be used for any academic credit or fulfill requirements for specialty training. An attendance letter will be provided if requested at the end of visit.
General requirements for an applicant:
- Have prior clinical pediatric experience
- Be currently practicing as a licensed healthcare provider in a pediatric field and have proof of credentials from the applicant’s home country
- Provide proof of English proficiency
- Provide proof of required immunizations
- Provide proof of sufficient financial support
Please review the different categories of our program and identify which fits your goals.
- Stecker Scholarship Program: 3-month observational experience funded by a Stecker Scholarship
- Independently Funded Program: up to 3-month self-funded observational experience
