Why would you like to participate in the Alzheimer’s Disease Summer Externship?


What specific medical activities and procedures do you hope to participate in or observe during the externship?

What do you hope to get out of this experience for your personal and professional development?


What is your experience with the elderly? People with Alzheimer's disease?


Do you have special interests you would like us to be aware of?


The externship involves travel between multiple communities in Wisconsin (Madison, Milwaukee, Richland Center and Rhinelander). We will provide housing as needed to minimize your travel. Do you have a vehicle to get you to these locations? Will you need housing in any of these locations?


Is there anything else you would like to share with us?






The Wisconsin Alzheimer's Institute, University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health, under the direction of Mark Sager, MD, developed this opportunity and will provide mentorship and guidance during the externship.
