Bay Area Ophthalmology Course Diversity Scholarship

Course Dates: June 26th – July 25th, 2023

What is Covered?

Course Registration Waived with Scholarship

Please be advised that travel or accommodation is not included in the scholarship. The scholarship covers the registration fee only. If you live locally, or would like to opt for the in-person course, you are welcome to attend the course in person, otherwise, the default setting is virtual.

The Stanford Department of Ophthalmology is committed to ensuring that our field of ophthalmology and vision research is representative of the diverse population we treat. We are aware that because ophthalmology is an early match, often students learn about the field later in their medical school training or not at all. As such, we would like to invite undergraduate students from diverse backgrounds, broadly defined to include participants who are URM, first generation, LGBTQ+, and people with disabilities, to apply to the BAOC course.

We will offer scholarships for the 2023 year and will work with you to identify specific lectures, which would be most appropriate for your interest and training level, but you are welcome to participate in the entire course!

*The scholarship will cover the course registration fee. Housing accommodation is not included, but if you live locally or wish to stay locally, you are welcome to attend the course in person at your own cost

Application DEADLINE: April 30, 2023 5pm PST
