Description: A Mentoring Team will consist of a public school science teacher and a medical or health professional student whose responsibilities would be to design and develop small group experiences, research projects and one on one opportunities for the students to obtain research and clinical exposure. The 30 students will be divided into 5 or 6 teams. Each team remains with the same teacher/student mentors throughout the experience. The curriculum consists of morning lectures provided by star clinical or research faculty in the fields such as genetics, forensics, neonatology, and bioinformatics. Afternoons would be reserved for the team to pursue opportunities with clinical or research experiences related to the morning sessions and time for work on their individual research project.
