Launch of the STARE programme 2021 edition

Building on the success of the previous editions, by 2021, STARE becomes a Teaching Unit within the Faculty of Medicine Sorbonne University and its organization evolves. The program will last 2 weeks in a single session per year, according to 3 steps :

The 3 mains steps :

 

  1. One week dedicated to practical activities. The students will be full time in the host teams to discover research.
  2. One week dedicated to autonomous article work. The students will have to do a scientific article analysis.
  3. One day dedicated to the oral presentation of the practical activities carried out during the first week and the analysis of the article done during the second week by each student.

With this new format, we hope to be able to welcome up to 20 students within our teams, platforms and companies incubated at the Paris Brain Institute.

Why this program ?

 

The training of doctors in France leaves little room for the discovery of the world of research. After the First Common Year of Health Studies (PACES), students are very quickly immersed in teaching anatomy, physiology, semiology and pathologies.

There are currently several courses (including the dual medical-scientific course) which enable some future doctors to complete their training with a solid scientific education which will later open the way to fundamental research which can be carried out during a Master 2 and then a science thesis.

However, the vocation to open up to research careers from the early years of medical studies could be offered more widely.

It is in this context that the MHI has decided to set up a pedagogical program to introduce students in their 3rd year of medical studies to research in the field of neuroscience: the STARE program (Initiation to Research Internship).

A look at past editions.

 

Initially built on a voluntary basis for 5 half-days, today we can unanimously say that the 60 students welcomed since 2017 have quickly integrated into their host team,

All of them have expressed the wish to come back for an internship in the future, undoubtedly creating vocations for a scientific training that will complement their medical training.

The supervisors also gave very positive feedback: the medical students, although they have never touched a pipette, adapt very quickly, quickly understand the context of the experience, and the interactions/discussions were very fruitful and rewarding.
