Scholarly Concentrations Program
The Scholarly Concentrations Program is a four-year track opportunity for medical students to engage in and attain recognition for scholarly pursuits in related areas of medicine.  Under this Program, students have the opportunity to do academic exploration in basic sciences, translational research, global health, medical education, or the humanities/arts.  The program aims to align the areas of interest of students with the academic mission of the School providing a longitudinal area of work to the student experience at the School of Medicine.  For many students, this period has been extremely helpful in shaping career goals and in building an academic track record attractive to residencies.
