We propose a summer clinical immersion program at the Weill Medical College of Cornell University that brings Biomedical Engineering (BME) Ph.D. students from the Ithaca Engineering College Campus to the New York City Medical College Campus for dedicated intensive clinical exposure in the summer between their first and second year of graduate training. Each student will take bioethics lectures; shadow clinical practitioners, and participate in clinic-related research under the direction of a clinician-mentor. This clinical summer immersion is designed to connect BME to healthcare and society and to steer and enhance students' research interests in medicine. It will immediately impact their Ph.D. thesis research by adding a medical conscience and influence their long-term career toward improving healthcare.
