Scholarly Concentrations Program
The Scholarly Concentrations Program (SCP) 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 (1) Basic, Translational & Clinical Research, (2) Global Health, (3) Medical Humanities & Ethics, (4) Medical Education, and (5) Social Science.  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 Renaissance School of Medicine at Stony Brook University.  For many students, this experience has been extremely helpful in identifying long-term career goals, exploring research project interests and in building an academic track record. https://renaissance.stonybrookmedicine.edu/ugme/education/Scholarly.
