Summer Between First and Second Year

During the summer following the first year of medical school, students receive a stipend from the GSP to support their primary care scholarship project. GSP students join other medical school classmates who have elected to participate in the Medical Student Summer Research Program (MSSRP).  While being part of the MSSRP, GSP students conduct their scholarly activities specifically directed towards the generation of a primary care-related scholarship project. All scholarship projects are approved by GSP faculty and not the Director of the MSSRP program.

During the summer, students are expected to complete the planning for Primary Care Week. This includes contacting presenters and speakers, finalizing the schedule, creating publicity, and working with the GSP administrator to arrange refreshments.
