Information About

Help Our Students Travel

Past host program participants

The Help Our Students Travel (HOST) Program matches our fourth-year medical students with alumni volunteers during residency interviews around the country. Alumni volunteers provide lodging for medical students in their homes during interview travels as well as offer invaluable advice to the students about the community in which they are interviewing. It is a great way for alumni to reconnect and give back to their alma mater and also see the caliber of students at the University of Iowa Carver College of Medicine.

Medical student indebtedness has become a national concern, and our alumni are responding and helping us to address this concern by participating in the HOST program. We’d like to thank all of our alumni who have welcomed students into their homes. If you are interested in participating in the HOST program, please fill out the form below to be added as a HOST volunteer.
