Edwards M. Chester, M.D. Summer Scholars Program

The MetroHealth Medical Center
Cleveland, OH.


Scholars are assigned to a MetroHealth medical staff researcher who has developed the project on which the Scholar will work and who will supervise the progress of the Scholar's learning experience. Scholars spend the better part of each weekday participating directly in the research project activity. There are also opportunities for observation of surgery, hospital rounds, and other experiences at MetroHealth that are an integral part of the program. At the end of the ten-week experience, the Scholars are required to prepare a project report for presentation. Each recipient will receive a stipend award of $2,000. Supplies and equipment are provided by MetroHealth Medical Center. Parking is provided for the 10 weeks. If housing is required for the summer, students can contact Case Western Reserve University at 216-368-3890 or at http://studentaffairs.case.edu/living/housing/guest. Housing will be at each student's own expense and generally runs around $20 per night.


  • The student must have completed second year of undergraduate education in premedical or scientific studies.
  • The student must be a resident of Ohio or attend an Ohio college or university
