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. The 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 and the Craig H. Neilsen Foundation. Please see the application forms for specific rules and requirements. We look forward to receiving your applications.
