|The Medical Student Summer Clinical Externship (MSSCE) program has been developed for medical students with a strong desire for clinical experience in the field of Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation (PM&R) and who are eagerly seeking opportunities to see patients. This eight-week summer program aims to provide a wide range of inpatient and outpatient clinical exposure and to allow students to explore the human side of patient care and the psychosocial environments their patients face. |
MSSCE is designed to be a mutually beneficial experience for both the medical student and the hosting site institution. The site institutions, in return for sponsoring a medical student, are provided the opportunity to establish relationships with highly motivated medical students who may be candidates for future residency programs or additional leadership training pathways.
This program is generously supported by the the Roosevelt Warm Springs Foundation, Please see the application forms for specific rules and requirements. We look forward to receiving your applications.
Applications for site sponsors and medical students must be received at the AAP office by the first week of January (site sponsors) or the second week of February (medical students) each year.
The 2013 MSSCE participants presented posters based on their work in the program at the 2014 AAP Annual Meeting in Nashville, TN.
