The Stanford-RCMI Clinical and Translational Research (CTR) Scholars program is funded by a NIH supplement to the Stanford Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA).
The program provides full financial support (travel, food, housing) to current third-year minority medical students wishing to complete a four-week sub-internship at Stanford in either September or October 2010. Students are welcome to apply to the program of their choice, but are especially encouraged to apply to the program in which they hope to enroll in residency in 2011. In addition to the four-week sub-internship, students are also invited to participate in a one-week course in clinical research that will take place at Stanford from Sept. 13 – 18th.
Students should submit the following: application form, a current CV, two letters of recommendation (including one from a current mentor), and a personal statement outlining their interest in the program. Priority selection will be given to students who are interested in pursuing an academic career.
The deadline for submissions is April 30th and notification will occur no later than May 30th. All program inquiries should be directed to: Kimberley Latta (firstname.lastname@example.org; 650-721-2390).
