Your first and second years of medical school are a great time to explore whether you like caring for children. You can do this through a preceptorship, R/UOP. We are always happy to talk to people informally as well.

Research Opportunity - Paid
Interested in an opportunity to do research in pediatrics and get paid? Would you like to visit another medical school during the summer and fulfill that III requirement? Then check out the following site: www.aps-spr.org. Look for the topic "Student Research Program" of the Society for Pediatric Research and American Pediatric Society.
We also have a description of each 3rd year clerkship site for your third year rotation for you to explore as you schedule your core clerkships.
