Medical Student Summer Clinical Externship (MSSCE)

Student Information

Please read the following information carefully:

  • Students must identify choices from a list of approved sponsor sites on the AAP website. Applications will not be accepted unless the sponsor site has been approved prior to the student’s application. Students must choose three site sponsor institutions and list them on the MSSCE application in order of preference. Students selected for the program will be matched with site sponsor institutions with strong consideration to preference. Sponsor sites will continue to be added through December 2017.
  • We encourage applications from students wishing to work with mentors outside of their own institutions.
  • The student must be enrolled in an accredited allopathic or osteopathic medical school in the United States.
  • Each student will receive a $4,000 stipend for summer research at an approved sponsor site and additional travel and registration expenses to cover travel to the AAP Annual Meeting. This stipend will be released in installments, and students will receive the full amount only after successful submission of an abstract for Physiatry '19, the AAP Annual Meeting..
  • The program is offered to all medical students but may be most applicable for students for the summer after completion of year one.
  • Students are responsible for making their own housing arrangements and travel to/from their summer sites. Students are encouraged to work with their site sponsors to identify suitable housing at the time of their acceptance into the program. the AAP will not be responsible for finding students housing.
  • Each student must complete the full eight weeks of the program over the summer and agree to present a case report at the following AAP Annual Meeting.
