Diversity Visiting Student Acting Internship Program

In the spring of 2019, with the support of the Department of Radiology, Dr. Kemi Babagbemi developed and founded a four-week rotation for rising fourth-year medical students interested in radiology who belong to historically marginalized and underserved groups. As such, the Diversity Visiting Student Acting Internship Program attracts medical students from diverse backgrounds into the fields of radiology and medicine while providing immersive educational and enrichment opportunities to highly talented medical students along with the opportunity to actively engage in clinical rotations and develop advanced clinical skills. The program is one of the first of its kind in the United States and has served as inspiration to radiology departments across the nation and beyond.
