Financial Support Guidelines

Travel Reimbursement

Travel for first-author presentations to a national, regional or local conference must be authorized in advance by AOSC director Richard Green, MD. Please complete a conference request form. Lisa Rawlani, AOSC curriculum coordinator will advise you of the status of your request. You should request support as soon as you are notified of acceptance by the conference organizer.

Funding is available for AOSC, MD/MPH, MD/MA and MD/MS students. There is no funding for AOSC students who are presenting at a meeting for a non-AOSC project.

Approval from Dr. Green is solely for funding and does not grant permission for being absent from class or on a rotation. This must be independently obtained by the student. If you will be missing a required class, please email Allison Matricaria  to request this absence. All students are only allowed to miss 2 days of class: 1 day for travel, and 1 day for the presentation.

AOSC Summer Research Funding Stipends 

Support for summer research is available to students who pursue research for an additional four weeks beyond the required four week AOSC session during the summer term. Please complete this form and email it to Lisa Rawlani by April 1.
