Our objective is to raise awareness among medical students early in their education about the potential academic career opportunities.

Research Projects

With medical education research, individuals need to come up with their own projects and have their fellow classmates aid them in their work. Justin Lindsay, the AMIG Liaison, is happy to sit down with people to help them figure out projects they are interested in. As it currently stands there are not projects readily available for students. 


Individuals should contact Dr. Manger, Dr. Parikh, or other professors involved in medical education.
