Date:9/7/2011

NEW YORK, NY "This year marks the first year that the oldest members of the Baby Boomer generation turns 65. This milestone is an indication of the upcoming increase of older adults in the American population, and accompanying it will be an increase in their complex medical needs. We currently have a shortage of physicians specializing in geriatric medicine, leaving a gap that needs to be filled." states Stephanie Lederman, Executive Director of The American Federation for Aging Research (AFAR). "The Medical Student Training in Aging Research (MSTAR) Program fosters an interest in geriatric medicine in the early stages of a physician's education. The MSTAR program aims to bridge the gap between the aging population and the doctors with the training to serve them by attracting more physicians to geriatric medicine and research.

The MSTAR Program is funded through a partnership between public and private sponsors. The major funders are The John A. Hartford Foundation, MetLife Foundation and the National Institute on Aging, with additional support provided by several other funders. MetLife Foundation joined the partnership in 2009 and has committed $220,000 to fund 45 students who will pursue training in geriatric medicine and age-related research, while an additional 97 medical students will receive financial support through the National Institute on Aging as part of AFAR's 2011 Medical Student Training in Aging Research (MSTAR) Program.

The MSTAR Program gives these top-notch medical students the opportunity to participate in aging-related research, education, and clinical training programs at National Institute on Aging-funded national training centers and at some of the nation's top-tier research facilities and academic institutions. The short-term scholarships, ranging from 8 to 12 weeks, provide students with monthly stipends of approximately $1,750. The program is intended to introduce medical students to the rapidly growing field of
