The Medicine and Research Summer Program hosted by Columbia University Vagelos College of Physician and Surgeons (VP&S) Global Health Organization is a 9-week summer program featuring students from around the world who learn from physicians, researchers, and medical students at Columbia University VP&S about diverse topics of medicine. Throughout the summer, students learn how to take a patient history, interview several standardized patients, engage in ethical discussions, have conversations about narrative medicine, and study various systems of human anatomy. In addition to the clinical aspects of the program, students learn research methods for finding sources, analyzing data, and writing a manuscript. This summer of 2023 features an additional Brain Intensive focused on Neurology, Neurosurgery, and Psychiatry where students will learn about anatomy, diagnoses, and patient experiences. Notably, the program's trajectory intertwines seamlessly with the Columbia International Collaboration and Exchange Program (ICEP), an international student networking and exchange program specifically designed for junior medical students - created by faculty and students of Columbia University to promote the improvement of global healthcare.
