The American Medical Association Education and Research Foundation is offering scholarships in clinical nutrition to third- and fourth-year medical students who have completed the required clerkships in medicine, surgery, and pediatrics.

The scholarship program consists of four- to sixweek clerkships in general, pediatric, and surgical nutrition offered by 22 medical schools across the country throughout the year. A copy of the AMA-ERF Description of Clerkship Programs, 1983-1984 for scholarships in clinical nutrition is available for student perusal in the dean's office of all US medical schools.

Scholarships are restricted to students for whom clinical nutrition clerkships are either not available at all or not available in their special area of interest at their own schools. Students accepted for the program will receive a $700 award to defray living and traveling costs.

Deadlines for applications are: Aug 1, 1983 for clerkships from December 1983 to June 1984, and Feb 1, 1984
