Student Hospitalist Scholar Grant

Gain clinical research experience and prepare for a career in hospital medicine

SHM's Student Hospitalist Scholar Grant Program provides first- and second- year medical students with first-hand experience with inpatient clinical work, hospital-related administrative responsibilities and educational research.

Overview

SHM’s Student Hospitalist Scholar Grant Program is designed to engage first- and second-year medical students in mentored scholarly work to gain a better understanding of the career of a hospitalist. Two options are available for students to receive funding and engage in scholarly work: the Summer Program and Longitudinal Program.

SHM Student Hospitalist Scholar Grant awardees will complete scholarly work with an active SHM mentor in a project related to patient safety/quality improvement or other areas relevant to the field of hospital medicine. The Summer Program should be conducted over an 8-10-week period during the summer between school year, and the Longitudinal Program runs for one year.
