Medical Scholars Program

For those who have completed their second year of college and have demonstrated an interest in health care through course work and other experiences, our immersive Medical Scholars program allows students to spend a full week shadowing SMG doctors in a specialty area of interest. Students engage one-on-one with medical professionals throughout the week, explore rotations and ask questions. Participants also spend half a day volunteering at one of several free farmer’s markets to learn more about hunger as a critical health issue. (Markets are sponsored by SMGF in partnership with the Community FoodBank of New Jersey.)

Participation is limited to 25 students. To be considered, prospective participants must complete an application including a statement of interest, resume, letter of recommendation and college transcript.
