The Internal Medicine Scholars Observership is a summer opportunity for University of Mississippi Medical School students between their first and second years of medical school.
Objectives are to:
Students spend two weeks rotating in Internal Medicine clinics and two weeks rotating on the Internal Medicine hospital service. The month-long observership gives an opportunity for mentoring and exposure to scholarship activities including professional CV creation, student involvement opportunities in Internal Medicine, and formatting clinical case reports.
The case reports created during the observership are eligible for submission to the annual ACP Abstract day in the fall semester. Our inaugural year for the Internal Medicine Scholars Observership was summer 2019; four students participated in the program. Each student is a first author on a case report that was presented at ACP Abstract Day.
Application forms are due January 28, 2022. For more information, email Dr. Savannah Duckworth. Because of space limitations, we are only able to accept current students from the University of Mississippi Medical Center for this observership.
