The KTGF Medical Student Program at Brown University consists of mentorship, local meetings, national meeting, and advocacy/service projects. Through the mentorship component, medical students (typically 1st and 2nd year) are paired with mentors for clinical and/or research experiences. Through the meetings component, medical students attend local meetings every 1-2 months on various child psychiatry-related topics. At the national level, medical students attend the Klingenstein Medical Student National Conference, AACAP Annual Meeting, and AACAP Legislative Conference. In promoting advocacy and service, students have the opportunity to participate in health education groups at our state juvenile correctional facility.
