SMGF’s Medical Scholars program provides a week-long immersive experience, providing a deeper look inside the medical field. The program is available to students who have completed their second year of college and have demonstrated an interest in healthcare through courses and other experiences. Participants shadow SMG healthcare providers in a specialty area of interest for one-week, engaging one-on-one with medical professionals, exploring rotations, participating in doctor-patient interactions, testing, exams and procedures.
Participants also spend a day in the community volunteering with SMGF at one of our free wellness screenings.
Participation in the Medical Scholars program is limited to 20 students a year. To be considered, students must complete an application including a statement of interest, resume, letter of recommendation and college transcript.
The 2020 SMGF Medical Scholars program has been temporarily suspended due to COVID-19.
Please check back periodically for updates.
