Certain minority populations are underrepresented in medicine (URM). The visiting clerkship represents a collaborative effort between Undergraduate and Graduate Medical Education that has been reported to help increase URM applicants and residents. Visiting URM student electives in pediatrics at five institutions were examined in an effort to better understand best practices. Financial assistance and mentorship were universal among programs. Most programs reported an increase in URM applicants but variable numbers of matched URM residents.
