Maimonides Summer Research Experience

Founded by Dr. Afshin Razi, Dr. Jack Choueka and Dr. Rushabh Vakharia in 2020, the Maimonides Summer Research Experience invites ten first-year medical students to participate in an eight-week research program. This year, participants joined us from the College of Medicine at SUNY Downstate Health Science University and Morehouse School of Medicine. Five of them received scholarships to participate in the program, which offers students the opportunity to perform research, learn the fundamentals of orthopedic surgery, and observe orthopedic faculty in real time.

BSE Global supported the program philanthropically last year, which helped us to offer the scholarships to deserving candidates.
