Medical Students Claim Top Fellowships
Jun 24, 2010 — Several medical students at Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University have earned coveted fellowships and prestigious awards for the 2010-2011 academic year. From Boston to San Diego to New Delhi, Einstein students will span the globe to enter research programs focusing on a range of subjects, including public health, neuro-oncology and infectious diseases. Placements include fellowships with the Fogarty International Clinical Research Scholars & Fellows Program, Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) Research Training Fellowships for Medical Students Program, HHMI-NIH Research Scholars Program, and Doris Duke Clinical Research Fellowship Program. In addition to these fellowships, Einstein students also won placement in the Medical Student Training in Aging (MSTAR) summer program.
“While Einstein students and graduates have a tremendous reputation and always do well with awards and fellowships, 2010 has been a banner year,” said Stephen Baum, senior associate dean for students. “We’re proud of all our students and are pleased so many have chosen to conduct research during their medical training.”
