Register for the Latino Medical Student Association Conference

Today is the last day for discounted advanced registration for the 43rd Annual Northeast Regional Latino Medical Student Association Conference. We received the following invitation from the Executive Council of the Northeast Latino Medical Student Association and the Geisel School of Medicine at Dartmouth:

LMSA Conference

The conference will take place at Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center on Saturday, February 20, 2016.  Our theme for the conference, “Fortaleciendo Raíces: Uniting efforts in the changing face of healthcare,” represents the desire of our organization to address the health of Latinos through partnerships with academic institutions, medical educators, government officials, and the community.

The purpose of our regional conference is to bring together more than 200 high school students, premedical students, medical students, graduating physicians, residents, and practicing physicians interested in serving the healthcare needs of the Hispanic community. To this end, the conference will include a series of workshops on the healthcare needs of the Latino community, student leadership training, and healthcare policy as well as several networking events.  Given the theme this year on collaboration in health care, our conference will especially focus on how to partner with each other, with medical and research institutions, and with the Latino community itself to address Latino health disparities.

Summer Research Internship at Cohen Children’s Medical Center

There are clinical research internship opportunities at Cohen Children’s Medical Center (CCMC) in the NY metro area for this summer.

CCMC’s summer research internship program originated in 2010, and has grown steadily over the years based on the extraordinary feedback from past interns and the equally positive experience that clinical faculty have experienced while working with such bright, highly talented and motivated students.  Clinical research internship positions are now available in 6 different pediatric divisions – providing students with a range of options in terms of minimum time commitment, clinical focus, and ambulatory vs. in-patient setting.

  • Developmental & Behavioral Pediatrics
  • Hospital Medicine
  • Infectious Disease
  • Nephrology
  • Pulmonary
  • Allergy & Immunology

This Word document provides basic information about the different internship programs and provides a link to a more detailed description of each program.

Students who are interested in collaborating on one or more clinical research projects — with opportunities for co-authorship on abstracts and papers – may apply for an internship position in any or all of the 6 sub-specialty areas.  The application process is identical for each of the 6 programs.   Interested students must submit a completed application, a current CV or résumé, and an unofficial transcript.  Although letters of recommendation are not required initially, select candidates may be asked to provide 2 letters from faculty in further support of their application.

The application deadline is February 15th; however, students are strongly encouraged to apply early.  For most programs, students will be notified in early March of their application status.

Medical Content Editor at OPENPediatrics

We received the following job opening from an alumnus:

OPENPediatrics is an online community of clinicians sharing best practices from all resource settings around the world through innovative collaboration and digital learning technologies. OPENPediatrics looks specifically to hire recent pre-med graduates planning on spending one or two years working before going to medical school. In addition to working on educational video, medical video editors gain access to frequent shadowing opportunities in the ICU, and are invited to attend various conferences at the Hospital.

I have enjoyed unique access to the hospital in this role, which has helped me to develop my understanding of medicine and explore my own interests in entering the field, while producing a valuable and unique product.  I plan on spending another year working for OPENPediatrics as I apply to medical school, and wanted to make sure that graduating Tufts students were aware of this opportunity.  I believe I remember receiving newsletters with similar job opportunities when I was graduating, and thought I would touch base about this.  You can find the job application through the Boston Children’s Hospital website.

Anyone who is interested or has questions can reach out to Sam Helrich ‘15 at samuel.helrich@childrens.harvard.edu.
