Summer research opportunity in physical medicine and rehab

The Association of Academic Phyiatrists (APP) is offering funded research and clinical externships for medical students in physical medicine and rehabilitation (PM&R), a specialty that aims to enhance and restore functional ability and quality of life to patients with physical impairments or disabilities.

Both programs are eight-week summer externships offered to medical students between the first and second year of medical school with an attached stipend of $4,000.

The Rehabilitation Research Experience for Medical Students (RREMS) offers a structured research experience paired with the opportunity to work alongside the most successful and respected faculty members in PM&R.

For more information visit the RREMS web page.

The Medical Student Summer Clinical Externship (MSSCE) offers hands on clinical experience and the opportunity to see patients and establish mentors in PM&R.

For more information visit the MSSCE web page.

The deadline to apply to both programs is February 9, 2016.
