Bray Visiting Scholar/Creative Artists

The Bray Visiting Scholar/Creative Artists Fellowship (VSCAs) support scholars and creative artists with a record of significant accomplishment, or who demonstrate great promise in their field. During their six-month fellowship, VSCAs develop, implement and teach a course or seminar series at the medical school, and give a public talk that brings interdisciplinary perspectives to the experience of healthcare.
