The IBD Medical Student Scholar Program, August 20 2022






The IBD Medical Student Scholar Program is a unique program for medical students who are interested in the field of gastroenterology and internal medicine to learn about the global challenges and needs of adolescents and young adults (AYAs) with IBD. This program runs adjacent to CCYAN’s Roundtable on Young Adults with IBD. This Roundtable is a year-long learning community comprised of monthly discussions between patients and providers.

CCYAN’s Medical Student Scholars will be empowered as future medical professionals to understand and engage with AYAs with IBD. This program is made possible with support from the Helmsley Charitable Trust, the leading private funder in Crohn’s disease research.
