The Scholarly Concentration program supports the educational development of USF medical students by providing opportunities for scholarly endeavors in areas of special interest. Through this program, students can acquire a "minor" during medical school. To be eligible, students must maintain good academic standing throughout medical school.
The International Medicine Scholarly Concentration is an interdisciplinary program designed to advance students' knowledge of international health and geographical and cultural diversity so that their clinical skills and research acumen become global tools when practicing medicine.
Students participate in monthly meetings, complete an international or domestic field experience, and formally present their experiences or research findings to the USF Health community. Current collaborations through our office allow for students to study abroad at partnering universities in countries such as the Dominican Republic, India, Thailand, South Korea, and Panama.
