Teaching Scholars graduates have successfully implemented incredible partnership innovations with MedStar Health's academic partner, Georgetown University's School of Medicine.
Medical Education Research Track
The Medical Education Research Scholar Track is a formal track within the School of Medicine curriculum for students interested in academic medicine and education scholarship. The track entails a comprehensive, longitudinal curriculum in medical education research that expands opportunities for students interested in medical education through a scholarly approach and is a compliment to the undergraduate medical curriculum at Georgetown University School of Medicine.
The purpose of the Education Research Scholar Track is to expose students who are interested in academic medicine to the scholarship of teaching and learning in a medical/clinical environment. Because a scholarly approach is an effective way to address challenges in education and improve pedagogy, by providing experience with research methods in an education environment, our hope is that the students will not only become informed consumers of the medical education research literature, but also become contributors through their own research in this exciting field.

Students interested in becoming an Education Research Scholar are required to declare their intentions through written application by the end of their first semester in the first year. Students completing all components of the curriculum, including AAMC MERC Certification and manuscript submission, will be eligible to receive special distinction at Graduation as an Education Research Scholar.

Summer Research Scholarship Program
The summer research internship is designed for rising second year medical students at Georgetown who will work with an experienced investigator to gain greater understanding and experience in research. The intern will take part in a research project that will contribute to a better understanding or treatment of mental health and, ultimately, lead to advancing health care through research.
