Georgetown Summer Research Scholars' Capstone
Earlier this week, Georgetown medical students who conducted research last summer between their first and second year gathered at the French Embassy (across the street from Georgetown Medical School) to present their research findings in a capstone event.
The late afternoon event started with a poster session (with about 60 students across disciplines of research and population health). There was a lot of energy in the air!
We then gathered to hear some remarks and a few representative presentations. Dr Steve Evans set the stage sharing how impressed he has been and continues to be with the quality of Georgetown medical students. One of his memorable quotes was 'The future is you.... it is you that we have been waiting for!'
I am proud that MedStar was able to support and fund 22 MedStar Scholarships last summer, including those funded by the Frank S Pellegrini Scholarship and the Pines-Kleinman Mental & Behavioral Health Scholarship.
Congratulations to the Class of 2018 for a job well done!
