Twelve college students began an eight-week program at AAMC on June 2. Working closely with a physician or nurse leader, the interns assist with clinical research and performance improvement projects toward a goal of presentation or publication. They are also learning research tactics in a classroom setting, and will present initial outcomes of their research to their cohorts, mentors and executives. In addition to research, students “shadow” mentors in clinics, on inpatient floors and operating rooms. Mentor clinicians include: Stephen Cattaneo, MD; Raymond Hoffman, MD; Alex Katcheves, MD; Paul King, MD; Cathaleen Ley, RN; Will Maxted, MD; Barry Meisenberg, MD; Joe Moser, MD; Lorraine Tafra, MD; David Weng, MD; and Aimee Yu, MD.
