Diversity is central to the mission of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health (UWSMPH) and the UW Department of Surgery in meeting the health needs of the people of Wisconsin and beyond through excellence in education, research, patient care, and service.

Therefore, the UW Department of Surgery in collaboration with UW School of Medicine and Public Health is committed to educating an ethnically and racially diverse group of clinicians and scholars while maintaining an open, inclusive and respectful learning and working environment.

To support these goals, the UW Department of Surgery offers the Underrepresented Minority Visiting Elective Scholarship Program for students pursuing a visiting elective in general surgery to encourage cultural diversity amidst its educational programs.
