The TCOM Medical Student Training in Aging Research (MSTAR) program is currently accepting applications for Summer 2022.

The MSTAR program is a 6-week educational experience in aging-related research with the guidance of top experts in geriatrics and aging. This is a paid summer research opportunity with a $1,000 stipend.

Research projects are offered in clinical, basic, translational, or health services research relevant to older adults. Students will also have the opportunity to complete clinical shadowing in geriatrics across a variety of settings that can meet the requirements for the first year 2-day TCOM preceptorship.

Students will have the opportunity to submit their research to a professional conference, and – if accepted – are provided a $250 travel stipend.
