Joseph Hoyle, an MPH/MD student in the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health's Public Health Leadership Program and UNC School of Medicine, has been selected to attend the Summer Institute in Geriatric Medicine at Boston University Medical Center in June. Medical students from all over the nation applied for placement in the program.
Ellen Roberts, PhD, MPH, Hoyle's academic mentor and the academic coordinator for geriatric medical education in the UNC Center for Aging and Health and the School of Medicine, said Hoyle previously served as a leader of the American Geriatrics Society's student special interest group at the UNC School of Medicine.
Hoyle will attend the weeklong conference with other rising third- and fourth-year medical students to gain exposure to academic geriatrics and research in geriatric medicine. The program is sponsored by Boston University School of Medicine and the American Geriatrics Society, with funding from the National Institute on Aging.
