The HSS Sports Medicine Institute (SMI) invites medical students taking a research year between their 3rd and 4th year of medical school to apply to the Sports Medicine Medical Student Mentorship and Research Program at Hospital for Special Surgery. The Sports Medicine Medical Student Mentorship and Research Program is a one year program designed to introduce medical students to formal training in all aspects of sports medicine research, including, but not limited to, clinical shadowing opportunities, mentored research in clinical, registry, basic science and translational research projects, attendance at weekly lectures/ presentations, and shadowing of attendings. Students will work closely with and report directly to a sports medicine physician (Principal Investigator) and collaborate with investigators (Co-PIs) within the SMI.
