Met with faculty at USUHS and community leaders in the broader DC metropolitan area to discuss potential synergies with BTG. This helped to frame the feasibility study in the context of how BTG would aid in our school’s mission of military medical leadership training in addition to contributing to community efforts in bridging socioeconomic gaps in healthcare. Furthermore, the team researched existing programs affiliated with USUHS, to include student organizations, in order to utilize current programs/resources to facilitate a partnership with BTG. The final project was to work on a feasibility report to summarize these findings.
Sahrain Zahoor: “The BTG internship program was a valuable exposure to community-based healthcare initiatives that seek to address socioeconomic disparities. I hope to one day draw on experiences like this in caring for our diverse population of servicemembers and veterans.”
