SAMA Research Trainee positions

Research Trainee Positions

Background

Like other foreign medical graduates, Sudanese physicians applying for Residency Positions in the US face an uphill struggle. According to the National Residency Match Program (NRMP) which oversees the “Match” (Residency Selection Process), 51.6% of foreign medical graduates applying for residency were NOT successful in 2015.

Since 2010, SAMA has strived to improve the chances of matching for Sudanese physicians applying for residency through Interview Skills Workshops, Personal Statements Review, SAMA Observerships. In 2012, for the first time we introduced the SAMA research trainee position ( a year long appointment).

The purpose of these positions is to give the trainee an opportunity to have solid US research experience in an internationally renowned center that would improve their chances of matching into Residency AND start a career that includes a commitment to scientific research.
