SmilePediatrics Diabetes Camp  

We are offering an outpatient volunteer experience this summer in Pediatric Diabetes during June 2013.  This time involves a week spent working with the team of physicians, nurses, dietitians, and support staff from Riley Hospital as a volunteer at the American Diabetes Association-sponsored diabetes summer camp in northern Indiana.  The week of diabetes camp is June 9th through the 15th.  Each medical staff person takes care of 8-10 children, in concert with physicians, nurses, nursing students, physician assistant students, dietary students, and pharmacy students.  Campers range in age from 7 to 15 years old.  More than 95% of campers have Type 1 diabetes.  There is also a mandatory one-day orientation session which takes place on Saturday, June 8th at camp. 

You will learn how to manage mild, moderate, and severe hypoglycemia and will gain tremendous experience by adjusting insulin doses on a daily basis under the supervision of an experienced staff doctor.  During training, you will learn how to inject insulin shots and operate a variety of insulin pumps.  Once you have a group of “campers,” you will be required to administer insulin doses 2 to 6 times daily.   Eventually, students at camp gain a large amount of autonomy and are able to provide excellent diabetes care. 

The camp experience will include dietary instruction and provide you with the opportunity to use several of the newest glucose meters, pens, and insulin pumps on the market.  During the daytime, you will be able to participate with the campers in group activities.  There is no charge for the experience.  Housing and meals are provided during your time at camp. You will sleep in cabins (which are air-conditioned) on the campgrounds and eat in the dining hall.

Each year the medical students who have attended camp have had a great experience and have been invaluable members of the medical staff.  This is a unique opportunity to get hands-on experience in providing medical care regardless of which field of medicine you eventually choose.

If you are interested in participating or have additional questions, please contact Todd Nebesio, M.D., at 317-944-3889 or at tdnebesi@iu.edu.  Applications to participate as a volunteer medical staff will be available soon.

POSTED: January 23, 2013
The Minority Medical Student Award Program (MMSAP) is structured around an 8- to 12-week research experience for students from the United States and Canada in their early years of medical school. Each year, up to 10 minority medical students enrolled in DO, MD, or MD/PhD programs are selected to participate. During their involvement with the program, each student is paired with a mentor who focuses on the research experience and a mentor who serves as a career development advisor. The students remain involved with ASH throughout medical school and residency to keep them engaged in the study of hematology and to help them attain valuable knowledge in the field. In addition, students who participate in this program may apply for one additional research experience the following year.

Participants receive the following financial support:

Financial Support

A stipend of $5,000, $2,500 at the start of the research experience and $2,500 at the completion of the research experience. A $2,000 allowance for travel to the ASH annual meeting, $1,000 for attending the annual meeting and $1,000 for a short presentation about the research experience at a special reception
In addition to financial support, participants receive complimentary copies of Blood, the journal of the American Society of Hematology, as well as The Hematologist, the Society's newsletter, during their medical school and residency years.

Eligibility

For the purposes of this program, minority is defined as those groups that the grantor organization has determined to be underrepresented in the field of hematology related to biomedical, behavioral, clinical, or social science research. This definition includes, but is not limited to, racial/ethnic minorities and persons from disadvantaged socioeconomic groups. Thus, applicants must self-identify, and participants are drawn from this pool.

Applicants must be enrolled in DO, MD, or MD/PhD medical school programs and be citizens or permanent residents of the United States or Canada.

The student is expected to conduct the research under the oversight and supervision of a mentor. A final report is due at the conclusion of the 10 weeks. The first half of the grant funds are sent upon Foundation acceptance of the student's proposal and receipt of a signed grant agreement from the school. The balance is sent upon receipt of the student's final report.

FrownMayo Clinic Diversity Programs Summer Research Fellowship DEADLINE: March 1, 2014

POSTED: November 8, 2013
For many years, the specific and unique health needs of minority populations in the U.S. have been inadequately studied. One reason for this is the extreme shortage of clinical investigators belonging to under-represented groups. Although some progress has been made toward increasing the number of clinicians belonging to under-represented groups, little, if any, increase in the number of clinical investigators has occurred. Students tend to view choosing between clinical medicine and research as an either/or decision. This is an unfortunate misconception and clearly not the case for patient-oriented clinical research.

Research Training in Patient-Oriented Research

Through grants from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and Mayo Clinic, a comprehensive training program for patient-oriented research has been created. "Patient-oriented research" is defined as the study of research questions that have direct clinical application. Many questions fall at the interface between basic and applied research, or within the area of clinical research studies.

The goal of the program is to prepare minority students for careers in clinical care and patient-oriented research.Students are matched with Mayo Clinic investigators based on their interests and spend at least eight weeks conducting research, usually in the summer between the first and second years of medical school. In addition to their research project, students attend a series of seminars and presentations that introduce them to clinical research methods and the Mayo Clinic Center for Translational Science Activities.
