contributions to the health of our communities both nationally and abroad. At
Kings
County - SUNY Downstate Medical Center, located in the heart of Brooklyn, we are

tools and
knowledge to be successful in whatever career path they choose.
We invite you to apply for the second annual Kings County - SUNY Downstate

experience in emergency medicine research, clinical skills such as history
taking,
suturing, splinting, exposure to cutting edge emergency ultrasound and medical
simulation, grant writing, USMLE and residency application preparation, and
mentoring
experience with the most diverse emergency medicine residency program in the
country.
The program is open to under-represented minority first and second year medical
students
in good standing at their respective medical schools. Applicants must include a
CV,
letter from the dean of the medical school stating that you are in good
standing, write a
short essay as well as submit one letter of recommendation. Please see the
