Congratulations to the 2020 Summer Research Scholars at MedStar Health

Every year, MedStar Health awards scholarships to approximately 30 first-year Georgetown University medical students in order to pursue research during the summer. For seven weeks, each summer scholar works under the direction of a MedStar Health physician-investigator to conduct research in a specific area. These scholars are housed at various departments throughout the MedStar system and their experience has been tailored to work remotely given the COVID19 pandemic.

Congratulations to the Class of 2023 Scholarship Recipients. Best of luck with your research!
