Each year, MedStar Health awards scholarships to approximately 30 first-year Georgetown University medical students in order to pursue research during the summer. For eight weeks, each summer scholar works under the direction of a MedStar Health physician-investigator to conduct research in a specific area, with the opportunity to have some clinical exposure. These scholars are housed at various locations throughout the MedStar system and their experience culminates with a capstone presentation in the fall.

Congratulations to the Class of 2020 Scholarship Recipients.
