Applications Invited for Medical Student Training in Aging Research Program Deadline: February 7, 2007
Administered by the American Federation for Aging Research ( http://www.afar.org/ ) and the National Institute on Aging ( http://www.nia.nih.gov/ ), the 2007 Medical Student Training in Aging Research Program provides medical students, early in their training, with an enriching experience in aging-related research and geriatrics under the mentorship of top experts in the field.
Students participate in an eight- to twelve-week structured research, clinical, and didactic program in geriatrics appropriate to their level of training and interests. Students may train at a National Training Center supported by the National Institute on Aging or, for a limited number of medical schools, at their own institution. (See the AFAR Web site for a complete listing of the participating institutions.)
Research projects are offered in basic, clinical, or health services research relevant to older people. Most scholars will do their training and research during the summer months.
Any allopathic or osteopathic medical student in good standing who will have successfully completed one year of medical school at a U.S. institution by June 2007 is eligible to apply. Applicants must be citizens or non-citizen nationals of the United States, or must have been lawfully admitted for permanent residence.
Stipend levels are $1,731 per month, $3,462 for an eight-week period, and $5,193 for a twelve-week period.
See the AFAR Web site for complete program guidelines and application procedures.
