Area of Scholarly Concentration

The mission of the Area of Scholarly Concentration (AOSC) is to train Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine students to perform a highly mentored project which culminates with the writing of a thesis. AOSC projects related to integrative medicine AOSCs can be developed in collaboration with our research faculty, through the Medical Social Sciences- Outcomes Research area of investigation. Osher Center research faculty mentor medical students across the four years in a research project.  This process allows MD students to conduct a hypothesis-driven investigation or formal project in biomedical research or medically-related field.
