During your first year of medical school is a great time to explore whether you like caring for children. You can do this through a preceptorship, R/UOP or participation in the Pediatric Interest Group.
We are always happy to talk to people informally as well.

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.
