Georgetown Med Student Summer Research Capstone
Tuesday night marked the closing of another successful summer of research for many of our rising second-year medical students at Georgetown.
Between MHRI, MedStar Health Academic Affairs, and Georgetown University, nearly 75 students received the opportunity to conduct research over their 8-week summer break between the first and second year of medical school. This research culminated in a capstone event at the French Embassy, with MedStar and Georgetown leadership in attendance.
I was honored to introduce the speakers who presented their research to the group in the auditorium. Each time they shared their summer research experience, I was reminded of my first forays into research between my first two years of medical school and how much it impacted the rest of professional life.
Congratulations to all students on a successful research project and I hope that this summer opened the door for all of you into fulfillment of research and scientific inquiry that will carry with you throughout your careers.
