PrMEIR Scholars Summer Intensive Program
The PrMEIR Scholars Summer Intensive Program (PSSIP) is an innovative program for enthusiastic and inspired students. This 8-week program is designed to provide students with advanced research experience, to facilitate professional development through a weekly series of workshops, and to furnish a wealth of knowledge about the variety of routes for a career in the healthcare industry. The program is open to students in High School (must be at least 17) through Graduate School, and we invite applications from mature, committed, and motivated students who fully accept the demands of the PSSIP and have a willingness to participate enthusiastically in all aspects of the program.
There are 5 project teams that make up the scholars program:
1, Database for Research on Education in Academic Medicine (DREAM) Team
2. Patient Empowerment Project (PEP) Team
3. Primary Care Training and Enhancement (PCTE) Team
4. Unannounced Standardized Patients (USP) Program Team
5. Business Operations Team
We encourage applicants to read the description of each project within our application package before applying. Each accepted scholar will be a part of one project team, and will work with that team to advance the goals of the project.
All participating scholars are required to commit a minimum of 20 hours per week to the program. Attendance will be required every Friday for a weekly PSSIP meeting and a professional development workshop. Each scholar will also be required to attend the weekly meeting for his/her specific team. All other hours will be arranged with the PSSIP coordinator.
