  • Integrating Student Research into the Medical School Curriculum

    Friday, February 24, 2012 | 8:15 AM - 7:30 PM
    The New York Academy of Sciences

    Presented by the Josiah Macy, Jr. Foundation, the Mount Sinai School of Medicine, and the New York Academy of Sciences

    Participation in basic research as a medical student improves analytic, creative, and critical-thinking skills, preparing future physicians for success. This conference will convene architects of medical school research programs to discuss the benefits and practical issues of implementing mandatory research training in the medical school curriculum. Participants will explore issues including: (I) the pros and cons of mandatory medical student research for diverse types of medical careers, from translational scientist to rural primary care physician, (II) the requirements for medical schools to provide a meaningful research experience, and (III) the moral impetus to offer research training, since tuition fees are used to fund institutional research infrastructure.
