Mentorship in the program
This internship program is designed to offer guidance and support for our students who are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare and who may not otherwise have the resources or experience needed.
Students will be working in tandem with the staff on a year-round basis during their time at Genesis. Often, the providers will elaborate on disease progression and diagnosis as well as give advice to students in their pursuit of a healthcare career. Access to this type of information and direct patient interactions provides our interns with a unique clinical experience that is hard to find anywhere else.
At Genesis, we take time to ensure that the students learn how the information they have discussed in their scientific coursework is applied in the real world and are able to experience the intrinsic rewards of working with the geriatric population. We hope that with these goals in mind, the next generation of healthcare providers will be more prepared to address the needs of the geriatric population and focus on patient care to those who are underserved.
Genesis Neuroscience Clinic is devoted to promoting diversity and reaching out to students that are underrepresented in the field of medicine. Students who are members of underrepresented populations are strongly encouraged to apply.
We offer an opportunity for our interns to receive compensation for their work at the clinic through the Genie Kilday scholarship. The scholarship was created after a patient’s husband graciously donated to our foundation in order to promote the continued education of our staff. The purpose of this scholarship is to alleviate the financial burden associated with taking on an unpaid internship position.
