Second Look

The Center for Inclusive Excellence Second Look program provides funding to support second look visits to IU School of Medicine by prospective residents and fellows with focus on those whose experiences and perspectives promote health equity and exemplify inclusive excellence. 

Support is available in increments of $250 per in-state candidate and $500 per out-of-state candidate. Each program has guaranteed support for at least one candidate. Programs may request funding for up to five candidates per academic year. Funding requests for support above the $500 limit are considered if funds are available.
