Mayo Medical School students selected for Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Scholars Program

ROCHESTER, MINN. -- Three Mayo Medical School students have been selected to participate in the Howard Hughes Medical Institute Research Scholars program at the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in Bethesda, Md. Only 60 medical students from all United States medical schools are offered positions in this prestigious research opportunity.

Second-year students Rochelle Wallace, Rory Smoot and Wade Alleman will do research in NIH laboratories as visiting scholars. The students live in a close-knit community of medical students with similar interests in research and investigation.

The goal of this unique, intense and focused opportunity for research is to introduce medical scientists to the positive benefits of the "cloistered" life of medical science. Participants live within minutes of the laboratory and spend each day in groundbreaking basic science in the company of some of the worlds top investigators in a place where research resources are bountiful and generous.

In the past five years, 90 percent of Mayo Medical School student applicants to the program have been accepted. Proportional to its student population, Mayo Medical School has the highest participation of any medical school in the country.

"This is a very competitive program and a great honor for both those students selected and for Mayo Medical School," said Anthony Windebank, M.D., dean of Mayo Medical School. "We can be very proud of the success of our students in this program and the educators who prepared them to participate."

Mayo Clinic has been educating medical professionals since its earliest days, when physicians from throughout the world traveled to Rochester, Minn., to train with the Mayo brothers.
