American College of Gastroenterology – Minority Affairs and Cultural Diversity Committee’s Summer Scholars Program

Deadline: April 15, 2018

The Minority Affairs and Cultural Diversity Committee of the American College of Gastroenterology (ACG) is committed to outreach through scholarship and mentorship. We believe that there should be a focus on undergraduate medical trainees underrepresented in medicine for mentorship and research to increase representation of these groups in gastroenterology.

Our summer program serves the dual purpose of highlighting the field of gastroenterology along with increased exposure to academic medicine.

Program Curriculum

The program will span approximately 8-10 weeks and will include the following activities:

  • Work on research project with a current mentor (i.e. experiments, data gathering, data synthesis, presentations, )
  • Shadowing of physicians in either the outpatient or inpatient setting
  • Assigned reading of 1-2 pertinent articles
