Site Sponsor Information

  • Sponsors must reapply annually. The deadline is December 11, 2017. No applications will be accepted after this deadline. 
  • We are asking sponsor sites to apply early so that medical students from all over the U.S. and Canada can contact them to look for potential clinical mentors. We encourage applications from faculty who precept students from outside of their own university.
  • The sponsor site must be a PM&R department at a LCME accredited medical school in the United States or Canada, and must sponsor an ACGME accredited residency program.
  • Each site must identify an ABPMR-certified faculty member who will serve as the site director, and primary mentor for the student. The goal is to give the student clinical exposure in an academic PM&R practice.
  • Once sites receive approval, they will be listed on the AAP website and in advertising media, and students will begin contacting them via the contact person listed in the application.
  • By submitting an application, the sponsor agrees to cover travel and registration expenses for the AAP Annual Meeting for each student sponsored. The application will not be accepted unless these expenses are paid for by the site.
  • Each site must commit to the program curriculum as designed by Program Director R. Sam Mayer, MD, that will last eight weeks and begin before June 15, 2018 and end before August 17, 2018.
  • We will allow one award to go to one institution. However, some sponsor sites may not be assigned a student, depending on the number of available student sites and applicants.
