Brigham program encourages minorities to study medicine

On Monday, 10 students will move into dorms at Harvard Medical School, where they will live during an eight-week fellowship that will have them working side by side with top researchers from Harvard and Brigham & Women’s Hospital.

The fellowship - called Summer Training in Academic Research and Scholarship, or STARS - is meant to foster minority students’ interest in a career in academic medicine, whether as research scientists, physicians, or another type of health care professional. Participants are undergraduates or first-year medical students of color who will work in labs, shadow program mentors, and attend seminars to polish their graduate school applications and interview skills.
