GRMC Completes Summer Session of The MD SHInE Program

(Wednesday, August 1, 2018) Guam Regional Medical City launched the MD Student Hospital Internship Experience (SHInE) Program on Monday, July 2, 2018. The MD SHInE Program allowed students interested in a career in medicine the chance to follow a doctor in real time at GRMC and participate in other opportunities at the hospital during two sessions, each lasting two-weeks. The first session ran from July 2 – 13 and the second from July 16 – 27, 2018.

The participants were exposed to most fields of medicine practiced at GRMC during their shadow experience. They also had sessions in the laboratory and radiology departments, where they were able to see first-hand how these departments assist in the process, diagnosis and treatment of disease and medical conditions. Other educational workshops assisted student participants in their medical journey, such as the most effective way to prepare applications to medical school.

“There is no substitute for the experience one gains from directly shadowing a physician,” said Chief Medical Officer Felix T. Cabrera, M.D., “This is also an avenue for them to learn about the variety of other health professionals who work together on the patient’s team.”

The MD SHInE Program is open to college/pre-med, undergraduate, and newly graduated students and high school students age 18 years and older. The MD SHInE Program will be an ongoing educational outreach program at GRMC. The next sessions will be announced soon.
