In addition to the mentored research training experience, the HHMI-SIRF Medical Fellow will have the opportunity to take part in enrichment activities with the other Medical Fellows, interact with HHMI investigators at an HHMI science meeting, and be exposed to leading researchers in the field as well as other physician-scientists.
