The Amos Christie Pediatric Summer Scholars and Darlene Batey Hoffman Pediatric Summer Scholars for 2009 recently completed their pediatrics experience.

These current second-year School of Medicine students took part in an eight-week program to explore pediatric medicine and gain hands-on experience at the Monroe Carell Jr. Children's Hospital at Vanderbilt, where they shadowed attending physicians, residents and senior medical students.

The Hoffman Scholars also worked alongside pediatric researchers, gaining valuable insight into research and discovery.

This year's students, from both groups, are:

• First row, from left, Victoria Wurster, Jamie Robinson and Carla Sandler.

• Second row, from left, Jenna Sopfe, Gabriele Andrade, Allison Martin and Nicole Hames.

• Third row, from left, Jonathan Steer, Conrad Myler, Anita Pai and Nathan Naraj. Last row, from left, Joseph Gigante, M.D., Billy Sullivan, Matthew Zackoff and Leah Harris, M.D.
