... Aging Research?
Please contact Dr. Michael Steinman (mike.steinman@ucsf.edu)

The Medical Student Training in Aging Research (MSTAR) program is a summer research fellowship for medical students coordinated through the Division of Geriatrics. We provide a mentored summer research experience for students interested in aging research. This includes anything from basic science to policy research and everything in between, although our particular strength is in health services research. We also provide students with clinical experiences in geriatrics and related disciplines, as well as a connection to a larger community of aging researchers across the country. The fellowship comes with a stipend of aproximately $1700/month as well as travel costs to attend a student conference in LA and the American Geriatrics Society annual meeting. Past students have been very successful, often having their work presented for oral presentation at national meetings.
