MedStar Georgetown Medical Student Capstone

What a proud moment.
Last night, MedStar Health Academic Affairs and MedStar Health Research Institute hosted a capstone event for the Georgetown Medical Students who took part in a summer research internship at MedStar. 

As we previously introduced in a prior blog post  MedStar organized and supported a research experience for 15 Georgetown medical students between their first and second year. These students did research in locations across MedStar Health facilities (including ambulatory sites and community based hospitals like MedStar Southern Maryland Hospital) in very diverse areas - everything from 'high end' areas like transplantation to non-traditional areas such as human factors to areas of prevention and population health.

Last night we had a capstone at the French Embassy across the street from Georgetown University Medical Center. The summer research students presented posters with a few selected oral presentations. Over 350 people attended, including the majority of the first year class. 

What was great was to see the great work the students did and to see how MedStar was a productive platform for these students to get a meaningful research experience.  This is in large part to the fabulous research teams we have so, thank you to all who worked with the students to make this such a success.
