ICYMI: Clinical research summer externship available

The Robert A. Winn Clinical Investigator Pathway Program (Winn CIPP) for medical students is designed to increase diversity in clinical trials and transform the clinical research landscape.

Winn CIPP is a 6-week intensive and immersive summer service-learning externship that provides medical students who are underrepresented in medicine (URiM) and/or from a disadvantaged background with opportunities to experience and participate in clinical research conducted in community-based clinical research settings.

There are several Winn CIPP  programs around the country. To learn much more about this opportunity, visit the Winn Awards website. Apply by Jan. 8, 2024.

Tip of the Month” from the Career Advising Student Advisory Board

You’re almost done with the classroom portion of medical school! During this last bit of pre-clinical med school, continue going to interest group events, volunteering, and doing other extracurriculars. If you haven’t gotten to shadow some of the specialties that you wanted, get them done before the end of the year. Life is busy during clerkships, so these things are harder to do. Of course, prioritize your blocks first, and don’t spread yourself too thin. 😊
