Essential elements of the Scholarly Concentrations experience include:
- Rigorous independent scholarship
- Cross-disciplinary study
- Mentored relationships
- Group seminars/courses
- Scholarly work across Years 1-4 of medical school
- Submission of a scholarly product
Participating students benefit from the faculty-mentor relationship that is central to the Concentrations Program. Students may have the opportunity to publish their work and/or present at national conferences. Additional benefits to students include discussion of their concentration work in students’ Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE), a certificate upon completion of the program, and recognition of their accomplishments at graduation.
