The Chicago AMWA Consortium - WISE Summer Internship Program
Our partnership with the West Side Institute of Education, offers a unique and rewarding internship that enable medical students to gain firsthand experience and learn valuable skills to prepare them for a career in clinical medicine and medical research. With the rise in activities in population health, medical students soon realize that they have limited experience in training that incorporates experience, and knowledge in the role of social determinants of health, cultural competency and legal advocacy related to healthcare.
We are always looking for additional partners to Fellowship to continue to develop it into the most unique medical student fellowship in the country. Contact us at AMWAChiefDiversity@gmail.com
The Internship consists of two parts:
1) A Practicum, lasting 4 weeks in which the medical student participates in and completes a community engagement project that involves one or many of our Partners and practice members. The type and scope of the project will be discussed by members of the WISE and CAC Board and will culminate in a written report and poster submission to the National AMWA meeting, JBVA Research meeting and a presentation at the CAC August Networking Salon.
2) Seminar Series: The Intern will attend a series of workshops, research, clinical meetings and field work to gather a real world perspective on how clinical services and population based research occurs. Activities will include routine project work that range from health survey implementation, community health promotion, and educational initiatives planning to infrastructure support.
Third and fourth year medical students are eligible to apply. For more information please contact AMWAChiefDiversity@gmail.com
