The Geriatric Medicine Student Scholars Program accepts up to six students in each entering freshman class, with the expectation that they will all remain in this extracurricular program through the four years of their medical schooling.
Their involvement includes (1) journaling electronically 6 times yearly on experiences or thoughts relative to Geriatrics, (2) experiencing clinical activities with their assigned faculty mentor up to 4 times each year, and (3) attending up to eight special programs provided on geriatric themes (four evening dinners with presentations by the more advanced students) and four sessions of the American Geriatric chapter (a student directed organization) with lectures given by experts in the field.
Between the freshman and sophomore year, all students will complete a research project working directly with a member of the faculty, with plans to publish or present their findings at an appropriate local, regional, or national meeting.
