Guiding Medical Students to Research

Each year, MedStar Health awards scholarships to approximately 30 first-year Georgetown University medical students so that they can participate in research projects over their summer break. For seven weeks, each summer scholar shown in this picture will work under the direction of a MedStar Health physician-investigator. In addition to conducting research, the students are given the opportunity to have clinical exposure early in their medical school career. Their experience culminates with a capstone presentation in the fall.

Last week was the start of the student’s official work and they all met at MedStar Health Research Institute (MHRI) for orientation before dispersing to meet with their mentors that afternoon.

Congratulations to the Class of 2021 Scholarship Recipients! I hope you enjoy your summer experience and keep research in mind as you move forward in your studies. You can see the full list of recipients here.
