Annual Gehr Family Student Innovator Award Program
What:A summer fellowship program for health professional students to develop a mentored health care quality improvement or health services research project on the USC Keck Medical School campus. Students will also receive training in qualitative and quantitative research methods, and meet healthcare leaders in the Los Angeles community who are involved in patient improvement and systems change. We select 8-12 students each summer. Each awardee will receive a $3,000 stipend.
Program Description:During the 6-week program period, students will develop a project in partnership with a Gehr Center faculty member. Students are encouraged to visit the Gehr Center website (https://gehrcenter.usc.edu/) to see a list of active Center projects. After reviewing the list, students may wish to meet with Gehr faculty regarding specific projects of interest to them. While meeting with Gehr faculty to discuss specific projects is not an application requirement, it may be advantageous to do so. If none of the projects seems like a fit, students may also propose their own project idea. Again, students may wish to meet with Gehr faculty before submitting their application to obtain feedback on their idea.
Consistent with the goals of the Gehr Center, projects should:
• Align with the mission of creating data driven research to improve healthcare and advance health equity
• Result in contributions to science that can be shared through peer-review publication or some other dissemination vehicle
