The UM Scholars program enhances academic offerings and student learning opportunities by tapping into the complementary curriculum strengths of the two universities. Conducted in 10-week terms, structured research projects allow students to expand their awareness, enlighten perceived career choices, or round out professional goals. The possibilities are rich for complementary and interconnected courses of study and opportunities for career readiness. In the past three years, 30 UMCP undergraduates majoring in science, technology, engineering, or mathematics (STEM) have engaged in mentored research projects at the University of Maryland School of Medicine at UMB. In 2016, UMB students from the graduate and professional schools will engage in multi-professional studies at UMCP. Possible matches include UMB School of Social Work students exploring journalism to learn how to communicate social, legal, and health issues to effect understanding, awareness, and change. Another target is the Education, Curriculum and Training programs at UMCP for the UMB student who sees a future in academia and teaching.
