Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship classIn an effort to recruit top caliber students, the College of Medicine Admissions Office offers the Summer Undergraduate Research Fellowship for pre-medical students. The purpose of the program is to introduce undergraduate students to scientific research as a means of encouraging them to consider a career in medicine. The goal of the program is to foster relationships between individual pre-medical students and faculty members, pre-medical students and The University of Toledo, and undergraduate institutions and UT.

The program is an important component of UT's diversity initiative and is open to all students.

Underrepresented minority students, students from disadvantaged backgrounds, and women are strongly encouraged to apply. The University of Toledo believes that obtaining the benefits that flow from a diverse student body is a compelling interest for our institution. A diverse student body is important in promoting cross-cultural understanding, helps to break down stereotypes, promotes a richer classroom learning environment, and helps to develop a diverse, integrated student body that promotes leadership. 

A limited number of openings are now available for the summer of 2012 on a competitive basis.  Each accepted student will receive $3,500 for a 10-week period of full-time research beginning June 4 - August 10, 2012.  Applications are due by March 9, 2012 with all applicants being notified of their acceptance status no later than March 30, 2012.  Opportunities for research in the areas of cardiovascular medicine, gerontology, neurology, HIV, endocrinology, orthopedic surgery, and pediatrics may be available.  Transcript & two recommendation letters should also be sent to:  SURF, Attn:  Marianne Pohlman, University of Toledo, 3000 Arlington Avenue, Mailstop 1010, Toledo, OH  43614-5805 by the deadline.
