Subject: MD Summer Experience at Emory University
Emory University’s Office of Summer Programs is pleased to announce MD-SEE,
the MD Summer Experience at Emory, for summer 2017.
Much more than a shadowing program, MD-SEE offers genuine clinical
experience, classroom guidance on presentations, and a vigorous look at
current issues and practices in medicine. This 6-week, 4 credit course will
cover variable topics of special interest in the field of Clinical Neurology.
Undergraduates will have the opportunity to correlate experience with
patients with the science behind the diagnosis. During their time in the
clinics, students will act as a “patient assistant,” helping patients who
may have partial paralysis or loss of sensation. They will learn the basics
of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and will
record patients’ history and neurological findings while observing
real-life patient examinations. Each student will be assigned a Clinical
Neurology faculty mentor who will help develop the writing and poster
projects. Publication of student work will be encouraged, co-authored by the
Pre-requisites include introductory biology and one neuroscience course
completed prior to application submission. Rising juniors and seniors are
preferred, and freshmen are ineligible.
Applications are now being accepted, with the preferred application deadline
of February 24, 2017.
