A mentor and research program to foster careers in pediatrics and neonatal medicine
JACK’s Summer Scholars Program has a rich history of providing students with the opportunity to view the world of neonatology and pediatric subspecialties through clinical mentoring and research. Summer scholars have the opportunity to work with the neonatal team as they provide care and conduct research related to infant and maternal health. Specific emphasis is placed on developing an understanding of multidisciplinary hospital care. The program also enables participants to explore medical career opportunities in pediatric subspecialties such as general surgery, anesthesiology, neurosurgery and infectious diseases.
The goals of JACK’s Summer Scholars Program are to:
- Foster premedical and medical student interests in pediatric medicine careers.
- Demonstrate the medical profession’s role in improving public health through exploration of various neonatal research and clinical care activities.
- Use mentorship to educate scholars on the importance of a collaborative healthcare team environment in quality improvement and emphasize factors that are vital to developing medical professionalism.
