Welcome to the MD Summer Experience at Emory website.
Much more than a shadowing program, MD-SEE offers genuine clinical experience, classroom guidance on presentations, and a vigorous look at current issues and practices in medicine. This course will cover variable topics of special interest in the field of Clinical Neurology. Undergraduates will have an opportunity to correlate experience with actual patients with the science behind the diagnosis. During their time in the clinics, students will act as a “patient assistant,” helping patients who may have partial paralysis or loss of sensation. They will learn the basics of the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) and will record patients’ history and neurological findings in compliance with HIPAA while observing real-life patient examinations.
Each student will be assigned a Clinical Neurology faculty mentor who will help develop the writing and poster projects. Publication of student work will be encouraged, co-authored by the faculty mentor.
