Community Health Gap Year ProgramProject Horseshoe Farm is a nonprofit organization that is aimed at addressing social determinants of health in under-resourced areas. Since 2009, Horseshoe Farm has sponsored a “gap year” program for college graduates, where fellows spend a year learning about community health, education, organizational management, and leadership tactics. Fellows are placed in one of three locations (Greensboro, Alabama, Perry County, Alabama, or Pomona California), where they will spend 13 months working in cohorts of five to twelve people. Fellows are also provided housing and a monthly educational stipend in exchange for their participation in the program. Project Horseshoe Farm has graduated over 100 fellows, who have gone on to attend top medical schools, graduate programs, and nonprofit organizations across the U.S.

The application deadline for the 2023-24 gap-year Fellowship is on February 12th, 2023. Our website gives a good overview of our programs, and you can find us on Handshake. I’ve attached a flyer to this email but would also be happy to share my personal experiences with you or any interested students.

We are proud that the coming year will mark the 15th year of Horseshoe Farm’s Gap Year Community Health Fellowship. This year’s fellowship program will begin June 26th of 2023 and finish July 12th of 2024 for all three sites.

In case any students are interested, we are having general information sessions. The dates and Zoom details are below or can be found at our website.

Combined Dermatology and Clinical Research Post-baccalaureate Fellowship
In conjunction with Beacon Clinical Research and Clinical Research IO, DermCare Experts offers its Combined Dermatology and Clinical Research Post-Baccalaureate Premedical Fellowship, an innovative two-year program designed to help college graduates gain extensive exposure to patient care, clinical research, and start-up health care technology, through an immersive and diverse experience which strengthens their medical school application in this extremely competitive environment.

DermCare Experts is a busy urban dermatology clinic in metro Boston, affiliated with Beacon Clinical Research which is an independent clinical research site with a 25-year track record in dermatology and internal medicine trials. Clinical Research IO is a dynamic healthcare software start-up with an international footprint, now considered among the top three companies in its niche worldwide. Premedical fellows will therefore gain a wide variety of experiences in two years.

As certified medical assistants, they will be deeply engaged in outpatient dermatology, one of the most competitive medical specialties to enter. In doing so, they will learn core clinical skills and critical thinking applicable to all areas of medicine, as well as gain an understanding about the fundamentals of patient management and clinical decision-making. By working alongside the physician, fellows witness the importance of continuity of care, as they are often the first point of staff contact the patient has with the clinic, and continue following the patient throughout their treatment. Fellows also enhance their interpersonal skills working with the clinic’s culturally and socioeconomically diverse urban patient base.

Premedical fellows also work as certified clinical research coordinators fully responsible for leading a variety of trials sponsored by multinational pharmaceutical companies, and will have a first look at therapeutics in the pipeline. They serve as the main contact for the pharmaceutical study monitor, while managing all aspects of patient recruitment and trial execution under the supervision of the principal investigator. Although many studies are dermatology trials, fellows also work on trials in other disciplines, and attend funded national training conferences for the trials they run.

Fellows will also work at CRIO, a start up clinical research tech company in downtown Boston, which spun off Beacon and is now one of the top three clinical research software companies in the world. Through their CRIO exposure, fellows will build extensive familiarity with clinical research study design as the program is structured to incorporate dedicated time to work on CRIO. Later, fellows can be engaged with any aspect of this aggressively-growing start-up in which they may be interested. Client management, marketing, QA, coding, sales, international launches, and overall business development are all possible areas of focus. Winner of a Great Place to Work certification, CRIO is dynamic, diverse, and flexible, where fellows will have the freedom to explore a multitude of interests to expand their business acumen. This may be particularly attractive to those who intend to pursue an MD MBA.

Additionally, fellows will also be asked to engage after hours in academic pursuits related to what they are learning in clinic. They are asked to read widely, ranging from textbooks to medical journals, as well as the popular press about hot button issues in medicine. Clearly, they will be expected to gain dermatology knowledge, and they may be responsible for leading discussions about issues they encounter in clinic by delivering presentations to their peers. They have the opportunity to attend the clinic’s lecture series by invited speakers; grand rounds; educational dinner lectures in metro Boston; and dermatology conferences both in-town and out-of-town, the latter for which housing and transportation would be funded. Fellows are also encouraged to write publishable work when opportunities arise.

Through the program’s contacts, they also have the chance to shadow and network with physicians in other fields of medicine, thus expanding their understanding of different specialties. In addition, fellows work side by side with medical students who at times rotate through the clinic.

Fellows also spearhead the clinic’s community and public health outreach, by arranging free skin cancer screenings and a variety of programming at community organizations. The clinic has also launched an Urban High School Premedical Mentorship Program, where fellows serve as Big Sibs to underprivileged youth to further their interest in medicine as a future career.

As appropriate, fellows may join the physician on international medical mission trips, with possible funding for expenses such as flights and hotel.

With this holistic and intensive training approach, those who graduate are uniquely poised to excel in the medical school application process and later as medical students, having developed confidence in interacting with patients to help manage their care under the tight supervision of the physician. In particular, participants will be extremely well-prepared to undertake future dermatology rotations in order to enter the highly competitive dermatology residency match.

Applicants who are looking only to scribe from 9 to 5, and who are reluctant to invest the effort and hours this highly demanding and all-encompassing fellowship requires, will find this program a poor fit. Successful fellows have grit; will accept and incorporate constant and blunt feedback without wilting under pressure; and are willing to work in a driven environment characterized by honesty and transparency with excellent patient care as the key touchstone. Fellows should be prepared to function as junior trainees. They will have substantial responsibility, will be held accountable for their actions, and should expect immediate and unsparing evaluation of their output. They will become familiar with the parameters against which they will be evaluated in the future, as they will be assessed against the basic principles embodied in the core competencies of the Accreditation Council of Graduate Medical Education, tailored of course to their very early stage of training.

Specifically, the first three to four months are the most challenging. Because they arrive with no true medical background, fellows should expect an incredibly steep learning curve and will often have 12 to 14 hour workdays, with weekend catch-up as they work on their notes and grapple with the entirely new vocabulary of medicine, specifically dermatology. Clinic is fast-paced with many patients daily who come to be seen because of our good reputation for quality care, and every patient generates administrative work for which the fellow is responsible. Managing their patients with physician oversight is how fellows learn, both now and through the years as a medical student and resident. Through this they gain a first-hand understanding of self-directed learning as practicing physicians.

The fellowship is total immersion, with long hours and sometimes critical, maybe even biting, feedback. Do not expect a relaxing gap year. This will be the most difficult work endeavor one will have undertaken by this point post college.

Do expect to graduate with the skills to rise to the top of one’s medical school class, and particularly stand out to the dermatology department if that is the field one desires.
One should absolutely not apply if one is not prepared to fully engage in this all-encompassing experience into real-life patient care, clinical research, and start-up tech culture.

Candidates must submit a cover letter, resume, transcript, and one actual letter of recommendation emailed directly to the clinic at, or through their school’s career center listing such as Handshake. Incomplete applications will not be considered. It is also strongly advised to have completed the MCAT before the fellowship because studying to score higher on the MCAT will be frankly impossible given the fellowship’s hours. Interviews are conducted via video meetings. We actively seek diversity in all senses: gender identity, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion, and socioeconomic status.

Please have your MCAT completed. We do screen based on academic achievement. We also offer two weeks PTO and 7 paid holidays - different from other hourly gap year positions.

Children's Hospital of Philadelphia Pre-Med Student Research OpportunityThe Division of Orthopaedics at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) funds a select number of Medical Career Design (MCD) Fellowships to allow recent college graduates the opportunity to explore many aspects of a medical career — research, clinical practice, education, advocacy and leadership.
Each MCD fellow spends two years as an essential member of our research and clinical teams, mentored by our thought-leading faculty from the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. CHOP’s Division of Orthopaedics was ranked #1 in the country by U.S. News & World Report for 2021-22 and 2020-21.
The central aspect of the MCD fellow’s work will be coordinating and facilitating clinical research, including: • Subject recruitment
• IRB submissions and renewals
• Data analysis/manuscript preparation
• Monitoring/maintaining data for study group
databases and multicenter registries
This will include training in research ethics, research subject protections, clinical science study design, methodology, data analytics and statistical methodology.
Successful MCD fellows will have opportunities to co-author medical journal submissions and are encouraged to present results at regional and national meetings. Through this immersive experience, the MCD fellow will learn how to initiate, design, complete and communicate clinical research.
Each week, MCD fellows will work in our clinics as a scribe, helping our attending physicians with patient visits by populating medical records. The scribe role offers the MCD fellow a unique front-line physician shadowing role in performing a history and physical exam, interpreting image and lab data, and formulating clinical decisions.
This daily exposure — over time — allows the MCD fellow to develop a significant font of medical knowledge, grow confident in the patient-care setting, and gain insights into managing the challenges of a busy and complex clinical practice.
Medical Career Design fellows will be immersed in our educational programs. They are encouraged to attend: • Daily lectures
• Weekly case-review conferences
• Research conferences
• A quarterly journal club
Each year, we also host Visiting Professor events that fellows are invited to attend. The daily interactions with faculty, medical students, residents and clinical fellows offer many educational and career exploration opportunities.
One of the key aspects of the MCD fellowship is mentorship by nationally recognized academic physicians. The weekly interactions between MCD fellows and faculty — in clinic work rooms, at research meetings, in conferences and at social events — offers many opportunities for faculty to coach and mentor MCD fellows.
MCD fellow applicants will be completing a BA/BS degree, pre-medical and commit for two gap years between college and med school. The student must be in good academic standing and have an interest in pursuing a career in Orthopaedic Surgery. The successful applicant will be responsible, motivated, intellectually curious and independent. An MCAT score, biostatistics training and research experience are strongly valued, but not mandatory.
Each fellow will be provided an annual stipend of $40,000 in year one and $45,000 in year two, and will be provided with up to $5,000 of travel support annually to attend and participate in scientific presentations as regional and national meetings.
A minimum two-year commitment is required. Fellows will also receive 12 vacation days per year in addition to CHOP-designated national holidays.
Each fellow’s official start date will be determined by the Division of Orthopaedic Surgery at the time of receiving an offer. The start date will be no later than June 15, 2023, with the exception of students enrolled in late spring or summer coursework. The official start date may be within two weeks of college graduation to facilitate the transition between incoming and outgoing MCD fellows. The fellowship will culminate no earlier than June 30, two years after inception.
To apply, please submit the following: • Cover letter
• Undergraduate transcript
• Curriculum vitae
• MCAT score (if applicable)
• Your earliest available start date
Applications should be emailed to: Research Manager Divya Talwar, PhD, at
Applications will be considered on a rolling basis through April 1, 2023. Interviews will be required as part of the selection process.

Due to pandemic restrictions and patient privacy laws, we are only able to offer a fully virtual experience, which will NOT include direct patient encounter observations. However, there will be opportunities to engage with patient advocacy/support groups and patient case data.
The purpose of the internship is to provide current undergraduate students and recent college graduates with exposure to the clinical genetics/genomics and genetic counseling fields. While best suited for individuals interested applying to genetic counseling graduate programs, this internship is also beneficial to those who are deciding between multiple career paths in healthcare or research.
Interns will receive mentoring from genetic counselors, and attend virtual lectures and career development activities, and participate remotely in clinical development projects. Examples of lectures and activities offered include the following:
Genetic counselor guest speakers multiple specialties (including pediatrics, neurogenetics, research, and laboratory settings) to discuss their career path and day-to-day work life
Case discussions in a group setting to understand the process of genetic counseling
Genetic testing overview, including variant interpretation basics
Graduate school admissions Q&A panel
One-on-one mentoring with a genetic counselor
This is an excellent fit for individuals interested in or actively preparing for graduate education in genetic counseling, as well as other careers in science and medicine.

Free UChicago Medicine Professional Development Program for Undergraduate Pre-Health StudentsDear Future Health Professionals,

The Bucksbaum Institute for Clinical Excellence at the University of Chicago was created to improve patient care; to strengthen the doctor-patient relationship; to enhance communication and decision-making in health care through research and education programs for medical students, junior faculty, and master clinicians; and to reduce health care disparities.

In our efforts to reach current and future physicians at all levels of their training, we wanted to make you aware of two free programs offered to undergraduate pre-medical students.

The Clinical Excellence Podcast
This podcast is a great way for pre-health students/applicants to begin to think about their own experiences in the clinic and how they may want to portray those in their application materials.
Focusing on clinical interactions and all the concepts intertwined, The Clinical Excellence Podcast is a biweekly podcast with each episode featuring a different interview subject and topic related to clinical practitioners improving their relationships with patients.
Our host, Director of Academic Programming at the Bucksbaum Institute and General Internist at UChicago Medicine, Dr. Adam Cifu discusses with his colleagues many aspects about their clinical interactions over their careers in these biweekly episodes.
The first episode debuts tomorrow, Sept 13th, and discusses some of the core competencies related to Physician Burnout.

The "Joel Schwab, MD On Being a Doctor" Lecture Series:
This is a monthly lecture series featuring Bucksbaum Faculty Scholars from UChicago and around the US presenting on a selected aspect of effective clinical care. The goal of this series is to educate students on importance of the interpersonal side of medicine and, particularly, the doctor -patient relationship. It is open to students from across the country. Please go to the website link below and click on the Zoom links of each lecture you wish to attend to register.
FREE Peer-assisted Casper preparationFor the last few years, HPSA has been supporting PrepMatch, a student-run non-profit group dedicated to establishing student networks to help incoming students and residents with Casper prep for no cost (not affiliated with Altus Assessments). The SDN forums have example Casper prompts to help anyone who wants to be more familiar with the format of Casper situational judgment scenarios and the question triads associated with each.

We just hosted a video about the PrepMatch platform, including their new video-answer platform that will be out of beta testing soon.

Summer Enrichment Program at University of Detroit Mercy School of DentistryThe University of Detroit Mercy School of Dentistry Summer Enrichment Program (SEP) aims to assist students from under-resourced and disadvantaged backgrounds with gaining admission to dental school, and encourages participants to become practicing dentists in medically underserved areas. Because the dental admission test (DAT) and lengthy application process can be considered an obstacle in applying to dental school, SEP was developed to make the participants more competitive and qualified applicants. SEP is a facilitated entry program that provides educational and professional development experiences to assist the participants with matriculating into and graduating from dental school and to provide them with resources and support for succeeding in their future careers in Dentistry.

SEP is a 9-week (4 weeks self-paced and 5 weeks in-person) structured program that offers free housing and DAT Preparation, and a stipend to cover sustenance and travel expenses. Various educational and professional development experiences will be afforded to participants, including financial aid information, admissions counseling, dental school application assistance, academic success and professional development sessions, and cultural competency training. The participants will also be exposed to clinical experiences and other aspects of dental education including simulation lab activities, dental specialty panels, and primary care exposure. In order to foster a welcoming environment, provide mentoring opportunities, and expose them to the city of Detroit, SEP will also coordinate several social events for participants including trips to museums and sporting events, tours of the surrounding area, and networking luncheons and dinners with UDMSD students, staff, faculty, and alumni, along with local dentists in the community.

The Application deadline is February 15, 2022. Acceptance decisions will be emailed to applications by the end of March 2023. For questions about the SEP program or the application process, please email to

Paid Summer Internships for Students with Strong Connections to MaineThe Hanley Center's summer Undergraduate Healthcare Leadership Internship (UHLI) Program has been designed to connect undergraduates with paid experiential summer internship opportunities in health and healthcare sites across Maine.

My best guess is that we will have a mix of in-person and virtual internships. As with last year, students will be required to provide proof of vaccination as a part of the application. The information session will be recorded and posted on the Hanley website.

On January 3rd, your students can find the internships here:
and the application will be open here:
Applications are due February 1, 2023

I would like you to share a couple of important thoughts with your students as you discuss these opportunities 1) We ask that students meet with and discuss their applications with their advisors. Please make sure that they have read the Hanley website and thought about and address the mission of Hanley Center in their applications. We will have so many qualified applicants that students who do not demonstrate a strong connection to the state of Maine are unlikely to be considered. 2) Over the last few years, we had a couple of students who reneged after accepting a position at one of our sites, and as a result we lost internships. If a student receives an offer, and commits to that offer, we expect that they will withdraw any other applications they have outstanding for the summer of 2023. 3) Please make sure your students follow all directions. We ask that materials be uploaded as .pdf files. It is up to the students to ensure that their letter writer submits their letter, so they should ask early. 4) As this opportunity is paid, students may NOT ask the site for academic credit for their internships. 5) Encourage your students to consider sites outside of Portland, Maine. Portland sites invariably have the most applications and are the most competitive. 6) Students should NOT directly contact an internship site unless the site reaches out to them. Students MUST apply through the Hanley website. All questions should be directly to myself ( or Judiann Smith (

BUSM-SMB Summer Program In Neuroscience (SPIN)SPIN ’23 is an on-site, 8-week intensive program in neuroscience offered by the Departments of Neurosurgery and Neurology at Boston University Chobanian & Avedisian School of Medicine and Boston Medical Center, and the Graduate Program for Neuroscience (GPN) at Boston University. SPIN students are exposed daily to the function and organization of the brain from a clinical perspective alongside neurologists, neurosurgeons, neuro radiologists and neuropathologists in the hospital and operating rooms. These experiences are complemented by weekly neuroscience and neuroanatomy didactic sessions utilizing clinical cases and human brain dissections. In addition, students are paired with a clinical or research faculty member to pursue their own, mentored research projects in neuroscience that are organized by GPN, whose faculty are in labs across multiple BU schools and campuses. State of the art research is conducted in topic areas from Alzheimer’s disease to drug addiction, human brain imaging, learning and memory, and the computational modeling of dynamic circuits. From this unique mix of clinical and laboratory experiences, SPIN students gain an understanding of the human brain from several perspectives and develop insights about the relationship of basic research and medicine. Past participants have described the experience as transformative and many have pursued doctoral training in the clinical and/or basic neurosciences.
SPIN is open to undergraduate students with backgrounds in the basic sciences including neurobiology, computer science, mathematics, and engineering. Admission is based on academic performance, letters of recommendation, and a personal statement. Program administrators will assist students requiring housing and board in Boston for the duration of the course.
