Student Externship Program
 
The District of Columbia Academy of Family Physicians is pleased to announce our scholarship recipients for the 2016 Summer Externship. Congratulations!
  • Anne Yeung - Georgetown University      
  • Danielle Bullock - Howard University
  • Lamere Buchanan - Howard University
The DCAFP Externship Program is a 6-week research and clinical experience for rising 2nd year medical students. The program is designed to offer students the opportunity to learn about primary care research conducted by family physicians while being exposed the daily life of a practicing community family physician. Students will be matched with family physicians conducting research projects compatible with the student's area of interest (clinical research, global health, medical writing) and will be assigned a project with a specific achievable goal that could lend itself to future involvement, for example in a 4th year elective. Students will also spend 2-3 days a week working alongside a community family physician for the duration of the externship. Students will present their work at the 2016 DCAFP Annual Meeting.
