Mentorship in the program
This internship is designed to offer guidance and support for students who identify with a group that is racially/ethnically underrepresented in the health professions, or that comes from an economically or educationally disadvantaged background.
Students are mentored by staff on a year-round basis during their undergraduate career. We can provide a clinical experience that correlates at any level with the curriculum offered by universities’ pre-health professionals programs.
We take time to ensure that students understand the relation of scientific coursework to in-person care and experience the intrinsic rewards of working with the geriatric population. In hopes, that we can matriculate a new age of healthcare providers with a greater focus on patient care to those who are underserved.
Genesis Neuroscience 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, as defined by the federal government (diversity.nih.gov/about-us/population-underrepresented), are strongly encouraged to apply.
A stipend may be awarded to students, who without assistance, would be unable or find it difficult to volunteer their time. To be eligible for this award, a student must be an active volunteer for at least one semester.
