2016 Summer Experience in Clinical Neurology 

at Emory University
Deadline: March 1, 2016 | |MD-SEE 2016 Flyer_detailed.pdfMD-SEE 2016 Flyer_detailed.pdf

Emory University’s Office of Summer Programs is pleased to announce MD-SEE, the MD Summer Experience at Emory, for summer 2016.  

Much more than a shadowing program, MD-SEE offers genuine clinical experience, classroom guidance on presentations, and a vigorous look at current issues and practices in medicine. This course will cover variable topics of special interest in the field of Clinical Neurology.  Undergraduates will have an opportunity to correlate experience with actual patients with the science behind the diagnosis. During their time in the clinics, students will act as a “patient assistant,” helping patients who may have partial paralysis or loss of sensation. They will learn the basics of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and will record patients’ history and neurological findings while observing real-life patient examinations. Each student will be assigned a Clinical Neurology faculty mentor who will help develop the writing and poster projects. Publication of student work will be encouraged, co-authored by the faculty mentor.

This is a fantastic opportunity for students interested in medical school. I encourage you to please spread the word, forward this email on to students, post within your department, on bulletin boards around campus, and steer qualified students toward this program. Attached are two flyers that can be posted and used as handouts.

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us at: or 404-727-0671
