Research Series

We would like to organize a series of brown bag lunches for medical students and residents,
where researchers will discuss their work and provide information about opportunities in their labs.
Session topics could include epidemiological, clinical, and basic research. These lunches would
also be ideal for the Columbia Doris Duke or NIH fellows to discuss their experiences.

03/ 24/ 2006 | The David E. Rogers Fellowship Program Summer
http://www.nyam.org/grants/rogers.shtml

The New York Academy of Medicine invites applications for the David E. Rogers Fellowship Program    
from first-year medical and dental students for support of projects to be executed during the summer
between the first and second years of medical or dental school.   The Rogers Fellowship is meant to
enrich the educational experiences of medical and dental students through projects that bear on medicine
and dentistry as social enterprises—that is, as enterprises devoted to the capacity of these professions in
any and all of their expressions to serve human needs—particularly the needs of underserved or disadvantaged
patients or populations. The content of the Fellowship might include clinical investigation, health policy analysis,
activities linking biomedicine, the social infrastructure and human need, or community activities. Half the
fellowships awarded are dedicated to projects focused on HIV/AIDS prevention or care.
