The Challenge

To stimulate interest in a career in brain science and medicine.

Vision: a workforce of qualified clinicians and researchers from diverse backgrounds built through a workplace mentoring program.

Target: junior and senior minority students with strong academic records and an interest in science and/or medicine.

Mission: juniors or seniors from Baltimore City schools are paired with a faculty member in Neurology, Neuroscience or Psychiatry for 8 weeks in the summer.  Interns shadow doctors in the clinic and conduct a short-term mentored clinical or basic science research project.  Interns receive a stipend.

Short-term Goals: over an 8-week period provide an immersion experience in a specific area of brain medicine and research in which students gain critical thinking skills and employ the scientific method in the responsible conduct of research.

Long-term Goals: to increase the pool of qualified candidates in the neurological sciences and medicine by 10-years post-internship through career-long mentoring.

Student nominations are being accepted for the 2014 internship. The JHIBS s program is in its 8th year, and begins June 16, 2014.
